Anyone else think we've seen the last of Begin. 8-9 minutes of ice time, 2 penalties, and at least one goal given up. Can't remember if New Jersey scored on their PP last night. Not the best way to impress Trotz.
Not happy about the score, but I'm glad Dex is getting a chance before heading back to MIL. Things will probably settle down the next 40 minutes, so we should get a good feel for Dex.
The Good: It wasn't a shut out. We usually have at least one or two stinkers at home, this was one of them. And I would rather get hammered by a good LA team than a bad Edmonton one like we did last year.
Could almost see this one coming. PREDS (especially multi-injured PREDS) aren't talented enough to sustain a long win streak, plus just coming off a road game last night v.s. a team waiting here. It was funny that a guy next to me said, "so much for the winning streak..it didn't last very long". I pointed out that in PREDS terms, 5 games IS very, very long. Get some rest and health guys- I want Santa to bring me another win against the #%*+ ing hawks, plus a beat down of Mr. Carrie Underwood's team in front of his wife.
