Fun wide open game. Markov is amazing. Pouliot just looks like a natural! Gomez and Gionta with 2 helpers. MAB with a key goal. Pleks and Cammy scoring big goals. Gill pulls a rocket out of his butt. Good effort by Max Pac after jumping up to replace Kostitsyn.
Now it's time to start playing at a high level at home.
Great, great roadtrip. I was hoping for a result like this certainly, but wasn't expecting it by any means.
Great to see Gomer turn his season around in the last 7-8 games. Markov being back is huge... followed closely by the return of Gio to give us two offensive lines. Pouliot complimenting Gomer and Gio is huge too.
What more can be said about Plek that hasn't been said? Cammy didn't have the best trip but still produced and AK was awesome (hope he's alright).
Halak was brilliant for four games and Price stepped up when he was given the chance. We need to stop whining about the goalies.
Where are the haters who said that getting Markov, AK, Pouliot and the rest back would mean nothing?
PS Can we see the top posters?
I think that getting Markov, Hamrlik, and Gionta back has been huge for us. I know someone mentioned before that they find Hamrlik has cooled off, but I thought he's been really good these last two games.
With Markov-Gorges, and Spacek-Hamrlik, we have two pretty good defense pairings, along with Gill-O'Byrne we have a nice couple of heavy bodies to lean in on the other teams players when needed, and to rub out the players in front of the net.
