Klein with a weak clear up the boards that gets intercepted ... something this team is guilty of far too often. Hornqvist depends on dirty goals to get his points and lately he hasn't been able to get the redirects and rebounds. If he's shooting from the half boards, he isn't scoring. A bit surprising that we only got five pucks on net that period with the few flurries of activity around Labarbera.
Does anyone else get nervous when the Klein/Hillen unit is out there?
Not really. Klein/Hillen has been more consistent than Klein/Blum or Klein/Bouillon. They gave up the early goal tonight after the puck of the ref, and were on the ice for two of the Canucks goals when everyone was getting scored on in Vancouver. Other than that, they've been fairly effective.
It looks like Weber is finally out of his funk from the past 10-14 days where he kept giving up the puck. The forwards are starting to play better in our own end.
Now if SK can remember how to shoot and Hornqvist can corral a rebound or tip one in things start to actually look good.
