This was probably discussed some place, but why has Gomez not been given an A? Think he is upset over it? I can't say he has looked good so far this season, and he didn't seem happy during that CBC interview.
Wow. I would rather be the team outplayed and win, than the dominant team and lose. Its nice to see them find a way to win, sometime good teams (whom we haven't shown to be yet) find a way to win when we have no business winning. They better figure it out and get this thing going, because ugly wins like this and Toronto aren't going to be sustainable. Once we face a team like Washington, Philly, we are going to need to play alot better than that to win.
One thing about all the shots, even with being on the pk, there were few times when I was actually worried. It seemed alot of the shots were lower percentage atleast to me. But we need to get the offense going.
This is a new team trying to gel and acquire chemestry together, we were missing Markov tonight, AND we lost two players early in the game... I don't care if it's a 3rd pairing d-man and a 4th line centerman, some guys had to take their minutes.
The defense was much, much more effective at getting the puck up ice as the game went on, we didn't give the blue line too much, and the more the game went on, the more the Sabres had a hard time setting up in our zone.
As for everybody saying we're lucky as hell:
- The only Sabres' goal wasn't lucky I guess?
- We were lucky losing two players early in the game and losing Markov Thursday I guess?!
This is a team gaining chemestry. No Sabres went in the slot today, which is another positive.
