Now THAT is how you dominate a hockey game. We ran Minnesota out of the building.

The Ward-Legwand-Erat line was dominant all night. Erat looked like a world-beater the way he was rushing the puck. Ward's goal was a great cycle play, although it doesn't happen if Minnesota doesn't just completely ignore Ward in the slot.

The guy that really stood out to me, though, was Halischuk. He was all over the place and had a fantastic game, and got a well-deserved assist on Spaling's first goal. Speaking of which, does he just love to play Minnesota or what? Four of his seven goals have come in the two home tilts against the Wild.

Our defense was a real treat to watch. We pretty much had our way with Minnesota's forwards and forced them to bad angles every time they entered the zone. When they started getting chances in the third, Rinne stood tall, although he was never really challenged all that severely. Blum had a couple of mistakes but recovered well. You can tell he's still adjusting to the speed of the game - he got completely undressed by Burns in the first period - but by no means did he look out of place out there.

Minnesota was flat in the first period, and we came out and took full advantage. It was really nice to see us dominate a team like that, and hopefully it's something we can build on for this final push. I must admit, though, I was disappointed when Hornqvist and Zidlicky didn't drop the gloves in the second. Hornqvist shouldn't have, because he has nothing to prove, but that would have been damn funny.

Great game! I watched it today as I recorded it last night. We were fantastic and for once the goals were flowing. I hope Fisher is alright because when he gets settled and starts scoring he will be key to whether we get to the playoffs and if we do, key to if we progress through the playoffs.

Stats touch up:

Save %: Thomas:.939 Rinne: .930
GAA: Thomas: 2.01 Rinne: 2.08
Shutouts: Lundqvist: 9 Rinne: 6
Wins: Price: 32 Rinne: 24

Now comes something that should be considered for Rinne:

Boston's GF: 203 5th in the league
Nashville's GF: 173 26th in the league.

I'm so bummed I missed the Charlie Sheen thread!!! Work has gone nazi and put a block on everything. Even wikipedia articles about sports, nothing else, just sports.

Yay for #WINNING

Will be sipping on the Hypnotiq version of "Predators Blood" tomorrow.

Phoenix wins in regulation which keeps the Flames in striking position for us while keeping the Yotes 3 point above us with us having only one game in hand. Just need the Ducks and Kings to lose Friday night and help us out a bit.

14 games remaining, 17 points or so needed for a solid chance (95 pts). Still doable.
It was really rocking at the Bridgestone Thursday night! Glad we could give you a great wake up call. We'll try to keep the team energized again Saturday night for a repeat!

Stay safe.

I thought the same thing, but I caught a slow motion replay and it looked like he somehow kept one foot down before making contact.

as long as your feet are down befoe you hit you are ok. it is momentum and physics that take a guy at that speed off his feet

right. I was saying when I saw the slo-mo it looks like a legal check.
