This is the Perrin I would have liked to see at the beginning of the year. Before being waived, he made last year look like a fluke.

It's not just a five game winning streak: we've been playing competitive hockey for sixteen games.

Perrin's hit on Connolly was stupid and dirty.

Stupid and Dirty wins games.

I finally saw the Perrin charge/misconduct that got him 12 mins (on TSN.ca replay).

As much as it is bad to take a flat out blatant penalty like that, I liked the message that Perrin sent there. I had a good laugh seeing the slowmo of him charging him off the faceoff. Not that Perrin was going to do so much damage with his size and all.. but

This is the kind of team spirit that needs to stick around for the next season, that the team won't take that kind of play (against Slater or whomever).. regardless of if it was completely intentional or not.

Of course in these cases you'll have to pick your spots, but that was great.

Outside of the tedium provided by some of the more negative around here thre was a lot to be impressed with last night.

Lehtonen. Again. Whether it be defense improving, health, maturity or a combination of all of the above this kid is finding his game.

We won a road game, the last of a three game swing, without our top scorer and captain.

We beat a team that is fighting desperately for the last playoff spot with a defense that had an average age of less than 24 years.

We couldn't roll 4 lines thanks to the Slater injury and still showed enough heart to come back from 2 goals down in the 3rd period.


There is so much to like out of what we're seeing lately. I know we're going to have stinkers before the season is over, maybe get blown out a time or two, but I'm really hoping we see consistency from this team the rest of the way out

After watching the Connelly hit on Slater again, He didn't just raise his elbow to protect himself but threw it out at Slater. He of all people should know better.

Good on Perrin for getting a little payback.

Let's keep this rolling into next season.

One thing I noticed in the shootout is that everyone but Sterling went glove side. One some of those attempts, Lalime had already committed to his glove side before the player even got off their shot.

Sterling scored..... in the shootout. We aren't going to shootouts every single game. He still hasn't done nothing in game which counts most. No such thing as shootouts when it comes to playoffs. But good for him for winning it for us.

As for Perrin, he has been playing very good but that hit he made was very bad to take that penalty when your team is trying to come back. Why not just let Valabik fight someone? Oh wait cause he was too busy riding the bench with his -3. What Perrin did, i thought was right, but bad timing even if it was the first 5 seconds in the 3rd. Every second counts, ask Todd White. Buffalo could of ended the game there on that PP but luckily Lehtonen stood tall again. Lehtonen took a page out of Moose when he stoned Vanek. Honestly though, Valabik played **** defense. He needs to call up his buddy Chara and ask for lessons in the offseason. Even when Hainsey made a mistake he is suppose to cover for him instead he went behind the net too. He needs to learn a lot. I believe he will and will be dominant one day.

Now, if we can win, back to back, against Wash-Pitt (2 playoff teams) and Det-TB (defending champs and a team we will demolish anyway), i will be absolutely amazed. Take one game at a time. I know we can keep this streak going.

1 of the goals was just a bad bounce that screwed valabik.
Perrin did the right thing, We are already short a forward, why get short a defence and short shift them?
Send a forward to do it and role with 3 forward lines for a bit.

The team showed heart for what happened to them.

ASF, you have to remember that this is Valabik's first NHL season. Furthermore, the team isn't supposed to be playing this good. It's great to see, really, and gives us fans a LOT of hope going into next season, but we're a cellar team this year. This is the kind of season where we do call the kids up and get them some experience. Chara had a lot of bad nights, too, until he found his mojo.

And honestly, how can you blame Valabik for going behind the net? It wasn't his fault that the puck was stripped from the other guy. He was expecting the pass, and instead he got a minus on the play. He was playing more to Anderson's system, and that's commendable.

Last night, we played a team who is hungrier for the playoffs than Montreal, Calgary, and Edmonton seemed to be. We played a bubble team, and those teams are always dangerous. We made a lot of little mistakes - offensive and defensive - and they made us pay for some of those. These are the kind of games our young players need to use as stepping stones. Experience, first hand, makes all the difference. Railing against Valabik and others during an off-year like this one is senseless. They're all getting first hand experience, and they will all be better next year. That is what matters the most.
