I like the 3rd especially, every players did the little things we need to win, winning faceoff at key time, Poms win the faceoff, Gerbe with the continuation and Hecht with the perfect pass, Connolly sacrifice his broken body to block shot on the 4 on 3 and the great shootout, we never give up 2-0 in the game and 2-0 in the SO.
A win vs TO tomorrow and hoping for some help and 8th seed is up for grab !!!
We HAVE to beat the Leafs tomorrow. It's the beginning of 6 games in a row at home. If the Devils win against the Hurricanes in regulation tomorrow and we beat the Leafs, we'll be in 8th with a game in hand.
Tomorrow's a must-win and we've got to hope the Devils can pull through. They're at home and on a 4-game winning streak so let's hope they stay hot.
If we're going to hope to make the playoffs, we have to start winning at home now.
Am I the only one who sees him in a leadership role next year? IIRC there was a nice view earlier the year of him leading an on-ice discussion prior to a goal, leading by example, all that jazz.
Vanek's definitely matured lately. I used to think that putting a letter on him would put to much pressure on him, but when was the last time we saw the patented headshaking and dullness coming off the ice from him?
I don't think he needs a letter to be a leader, but I'm less opposed to it now than I was a year ago.
G- the way the Sabres didn't quit after the 1st period. Gerbe seemed to be buzzing tonight!
B- the 1st period, Morrisonn didn't look too good tonight.
U- the shootout, god I hate shootouts.
for some reason (I may be in the minority) Pierre Mcguire rubs me the wrong way. Is it his "I know hockey, by the way" tone? Is it his "I am friends with every NHLer" act? I don't know. Maybe it is the way Versus uses him.
