Great game. It felt like the playoffs. That special type of hurt and horror.
Lehner played like a beast and showed how well he can handle pressure. We controlled the offence for much of the game (minus the third, but with a desperate Bruins squad and three PKs, what can you do?) and the defense played solid hockey.
That being said, Tim Thomas still scares me. The Bruins played as I expected though, they threw some hits, made a few potshots away from the play, but that only made it easier for Ottawa to take control offensively. Nobody shyed away though, which is great to see. If we bury our chances, I may live a healthier life.
This was a game I think we needed to win and we did. Great job, spectacular job.
Guys, it was an honor and privledge to say we witnessed our future star Robin Lehner's 1st NHL Shutout against the Defending Stanley Cup Champions.
He is playing like a man that has fire lit under a$$ and that is good. What a game, I hope this gives a lot of confidence to this team down the stretch, if we play like that every game we'll be unstoppable.
