Regarding last nights game, the better team won that one. They came out and played their game right off the bat. Atlanta tried to copy their game, and didn't do so well. Had we played our game for the full 60, rather than the last ten minutes, I think we could have won. Near the end, Conklin was giving up rebounds again. We just didn't have anyone to put 'em home.
It's almost expected for a team as young as ours to have nights where they go out, and play someone elses style. They shouldn't. They're professionals. But it happens.
We can't win all 82, but we need this team to win more than they lose. Clearly, that goes without saying. Last night was just a bump in the road.
A win in Boston will be big, and coming home to Thrasherville and blasting the Bolts will be even bigger. We need to start winning against division foes like Tampa Bay, like we have against Washington.
Physically, I hope we can keep the game quiet and make it more of a skating game. Our guys have run a damn hard gauntlet over the past 2 weeks. I don't want Chara or Lucic awake and taking any runs in the corners.
Let's win a 3-1 sleeper and enjoy 2 days of rest before having to meet up with Santa's Elf, St.Louis on Sunday.
Seems like this came up a year ro so ago in the media and after talking to a few enfeorcers,the concensus was "No way in !@#$ i'm taking my helmet off before somebody tries to smash me up".I don't recall if it was because of the falling and cracking skull danger or what?
Who know's?I have a bad memory and could be way off though.
P.S.-Loudfan,i'll change my avatar in the next couple of day's.Didnt realize you had it already.
A lot of people use that avatar. No shame in having good taste, IMO
ya lots of people have it, i was one of the first that i personally saw to have it zoomed right in on cookie's face getting smashed, but i could care less if people have it too, the more the merrier really
