Torts was getting a few pointers from Keenan I'm assuming.

He has gathered up for that benching with a season of underperformance.

Prust
Gaborik
Biron

Honourable Mention: McDonagh

Gaborik was the straw that stirred the drink when it came to offense. I am so impressed by how much heart he has.

you really didn't like this? regardless of his play of the past 3-5 weeks (longer than that prolly) Torts is making a statement. Play like that doesn't win championships. You have to be a better player than that. I loved it. And as many people have said you didn't even notice he wasn't there.

Back to back games on road with travel, you bet we will see plenty of Dubinsky not only tomorrow night but on Sunday afternoon as well.

Somebody let Steve Eminger know he's playing tomorrow.

I think that's what Torts was thinking too. Keenan was probably giddy as a school girl watching that.

Ugh.

McDonagh-Girardi
Staal-Stralman (poor Sam)
Eminger-Bickel

Not expecting a win tomorrow with that lineup.

Bickel played pretty well defensively tonight. Biron was good and got us the win. Arty showed off some of his firepower.

Dubi took a real stupid penalty and got benched for it. I don't think he should've lost the entire game. The way I look at it is he's a player who is struggling confidence-wise, so ok, you bench him for a period to get your message across. But with someone who is having head problems already I feel like it's necessary to give them a chance to redeem themselves. No doubt this is going to get in his head probably more than it should.

Edit: Although he has sucked recently and maybe it was a good choice to sit him and really drive that message home... I'm sure the coach knows what he's doing.

I understand he's making a statement. Benching him for both the entire 2nd and 3rd periods was too much imo. Keeping him away from the second would have sufficed. Now Dubi doesn't get a chance to redeem himself. I understand where your coming from but I feel like Dubi should have gotten somthing, a shift, to redeem himself.

They need to get Dubinsky going before the playoffs roll around... Sitting him on the bench the entire game is not going to help accomplish that goal. We've had other players take stupid penalties and not get the same treatment.

We can get it done with that lineup, only bottom pairing is kinda weak. If we lose, oh well no big deal. Remember, we have Hank in net tomorrow.

I think Tortorella is fed up with Dubinsky's underperformance. Okay, so he went hard on Dubi. Tortorella was basically telling Dubi that he doesn't deserve to get away with a selfish and retarded penalty like that, while we know that a Gaborik or a Callahan or a Richards or a...would. I'm okay with the discrimination. That discrimination is completely cool.
Dubinsky needs to fix his game.

For a big, big man, Scott is fairly mobile. I thought he did quite for his first outing and small amount of minutes.

I Dubi's penalty was up there as one of the dumbest, I didn't like him benched the rest of the game for it.

However, this might just be the one thing that makes him come back strong next game.

Scott handles the puck fairly well, and has surprisingly good agility for his size. He still is very slow.

Eh...the more I think about it, the more I'd agree with that. But the more I remember how this team has played as a whole recently with bonehead BS and silly penalties. This was a statement not only to BD, but to the rest of the team. You play like **** you ride the pine pony.

We have to start beating someone with authority. I worry what happens if those 1 goal wins turn into one goal losses. Not to mention that the game winning goal came on a bounce off the linesman, what happens when we don't get those bounces? We outplayed Carolina. I didn't see like 10 minutes of the game, but from what I saw we outplayed them, but it's still only a 3-2 win, which easily could have been a loss and even more easily gone to OT (though the way Carolina has been in OT or the SO, that's probably a win)

And it almost cost us the game. I want to see Dubi-Richards-Cally for more than 5 minutes tomorrow. 2 point night for Dubi tomorrow.
