Great, gutsy win. Glad the team got two here when I would have been happy with one; shocked and happy that they were able to dig down and grind it out when they started getting behind the 8-ball with penalties and fatigue. Remember, second game of a back-to-back...I'm proud and impressed!
Hopefully, it's a confidence-builder.
And nice to see Pronger enjoy some karma. Dude still plays by the 2000 rulebook.
He is now 4-0 when facing 40 or more shots on goal this season. Gamer!

That's a little overdramatic given that they were all tired today, but it's not as big of a deal when you're snake-bit/underachieving forward isn't on the 1st line (let us all rejoice that Murray saw the light there).

gotta be one of Quick's bests of the year....he came up big more than a few times and looked solid. nice to see Doughty get the goal/game winner...love the celebration (quiet Flyer fans and the scream). I'd also agree Poni looked good (A+ checking game)...it'd be nice to see him get some goals. Lokti looks great as a center....his game is way elevated in that position.
Just watched the Pronger hit a couple of times and yes it looked like it should be a 2 min pen, but Pronger knew what was coming because he turned his head and saw Stoll coming at him as he was looking for a penalty . He saw him turned and positioned himself a couple of feet away from the board and just waited for the hit. That is why I believe the ref did not call it since he was right there. but on the other hand those refs where mostly blind...so?
