funny thread title

Myers and Sekera were horrible. Vanek, Poms and Roy were great. Miller was meh.

Great: Vanek, Tropp

Average (again): Miller

Bad: Ville the Villain with his whole ONE goal on the season still.

Ugly: The entire defense, especially Tyler 'I don't know the rules' Myers and Andrej 'What do you mean I need to cover somebody?!??' Sekera.

HA I laughed at the title of this thread. Miller did look shaky, no doubt. But he didn't get a lot of help from the defense.

Good:
Roy in the offensive zone.
Vanek/Pominville.
Tropp getting his first goal.
Our PP.

Bad:
Roy in the defensive zone.
Stafford was invisible.
Cody's face after the fight.

Ugly:
Myers/Sekera.
Defense all around.

G:We've won 3 in a row.

B:We didn't look very good in any of the 3 games.

U:Not knowing if it will get better or worse from here on out. One thing is for sure, the team can't keep playing this way.

-Vanek
-Roy offensively, especially on the PP
-Tropp getting his first goal
-First PP unit
-Miller with some big saves late in the game

-Defense
-Defensive coverage

Good:

Winning
Offensive players stepping up and making plays , making the refs think about calls and luckily it went in our favor tonight

Bad:

Millers woes continue
Our D was horrible , puck watching and not getting good shots/passes from the point , as well as leaving gigantic gaps of space in our D zone

Ugly:

6-5...ew

Shots fired all in this thread. So petty.

Miller looked shaky but tightened up throughout.

Defense was scary. Leaving wide open players all over the ice.

Offense was on point, kept control in the Ozone and made good passes on the powerplay.

Long passes kept getting picked off.

Refs were favorable.

Cody fight looked like a Dragonball Z episode.

Myers was a tale of two sides. The bad side was prominent.

Ehrhoff was decent to me. Made some defensive plays and contributed on offense.

Grags was much better. Gaining confidence.

Vanek is godlike, Pomms is everywhere.

Roy was excellent. Right place right time on one goal, sick shot on the second.

Tropp with his first. Kid has a motor.

Gaustad played great in the first two periods. Outstanding, even.

Gerbe did a bit too much. Needs to contain himself and maintain the same energy level.

Tropp was great and did you see him out there at overtime, that wasn't by accident.

He was shaky for most of the game. I don't think anyone could argue that.

They're his fault by association. Just like those goals are on the D, as well. You gain nothing by doing this. Miller could have saved all of those shots but didn't. They weren't easy saves but oh well. That's how it goes.

Vanek, Pominville, Gaustad carried the team tonight. Unbelievable games from those three tonight. Leaders being leaders, love to see that.

Ehrhoff-Grags did not give up a goal when they were on the ice. Ehrhoff was rock solid defensively today, he should not be lumped in with the bad defense. Grags was OK, but Ehrhoff carried that pair in their own end.

Yes, we got some good calls. Yes, we gave up 5 goals.

But Miller finally got a win. Let's see if he can start to regain his form with at least one monkey off his back. Plus late in the third, he started to look like the Miller we're used to: poised, swallowing shots...

I like the chances of Miller breaking out of this slump.

If I was a jets fan I'd be pissed about that penalty on Roy that ld to the 5 on 3... But I'm not so I'm happy we won.

3 goals came on prime scoring chances. When those go in... i hear "that was unstoppable".... or "He had no chance". But he DOES stop those premier scoring opportunities... and when he does, i hear "great save" or "he stole that game".

So are those premier scoring chances that he stops just pure luck? since if they go in, the shot was unstoppable?

I don't have a negative opinion of Miller as a goalie, I have an indifferent opinion about goaltending in general.

in regards to tonight's game. I think he was not sharp. The 2nd goal, he read the play late. the Byfuglien goal, he barely reacted to the shot, the goal that came off the boards... i don't know what he was doing there, he took himself way out of the play.

G:

Pomminville was awesome, for whatever reason that looked like the best game I've ever seen him play.

McCormick. Pushing the envelope on male evolution with every shift.

B:

This thread title, is it a sarcastic jab at RM or just a poor observation? I'm glad he got a win, but lets not polish this tin medal into gold (no pun intended).

The Jets. I'm sorry if any Jets fans read this but your team is the WORST team I've seen this season. They are so bad, I don't know how they are ever in any games let alone have a lead or actually WIN one. I'm embarrassed for the Sabres, they should have won this game 6-2, they had too work hard to match the suck level.

U:

Ummmm wow. I enjoyed the game, it was very entertaining and eventful. But, most of those goals were due too retarded plays or amazingly dumb penalties. I would rather watch a low scoring well played game then that one.
