Messin' the Habs Draft Position AND Winning the Game? Sweet

Good -

- Ennis. Beast.
- Two points
- Myers finish
- Foligno doing the little things on both of Ennis goals.
- Miller may have fought it a bit early, but he made some good saves when they needed them.

The Bad -

- That GTG. Good Christ that was painful.
- CoHo down to the 4th line and just over 11 minutes ToI. He had some solid shifts, but they need to find a way to get this kid working with some scoring talent.


The Ugly -

- Hey Don, you suck. You sucked in the OHL -- I should've just thrown those glasses at you instead of just asking if you needed them more than me. And you sucked in the AHL. You still suck, VanMassivehoser. You and your enormous ego hardly fit into one uniform.

I don't understand Ruff's coaching decisions at times. Why are Sulzer and Regher 2 guys who have never played together out there during the final seconds?

Sustained puck possession in the offensive zone
Myers GWG

B:
Not finishing the gazillion glorious opportunities

U:
GTG. But it worked out.

Interesting: Sulzer on the ice at the end of the game.

Yes it is. The "O" stands for Overtime.

Shooutout wins are not used, but overtime decisions are.

G- Tyler Ennis- Best game as a Sabre
Tyler Myers- Great game, thought he got injured...whew. He is pitching in on the rush at perfect times. Earlier this season he was doing it at wrong times, leading to odd man rushes
Sulzer- Another solid game at D
VRP had some good chances

B- Roy laying on ice for 10 seconds on that goal that led to OT
Ruffs line changes/line arrangements

U-Nothing we got 2 points and we needed them, going to game on Wednesday, cannot wait!

My benchmark has been take 6 points out of every 8.

6 out of 8 on the roadtrip.

6 out of 8 in the next 4 (Carolina, Boston, Ottawa, Montreal).

Now they need to take 6 out of 8 in the next set: Avalanche, Panthers, Lightning, Canadiens. Very doable.

Not necessarily, we just need to win more games than winnipeg and get at least 3 more points than capitals

Good:

Ennis was by far the best player on the ice
Myers with the finish
Roy was great tonight
Stafford looked better
Leino-Gerbe doing some nasty cycling
Budaj was the second best player on the ice

Bad:
Giving up that GTG. Yikes. When you dominate a game that completely, you can't let something like that happen.
Ennis getting tackled over and over sans penalty.

Ugly:
Myers' board. That was really dangerous. Fine incoming at minimum.

I like Ehrhoff and Cole having a little feud developing. They don't like one another. Good.

Anyone feel like looking into the three-way-tie rules for me? I think ROW isn't the main determinant there.

Doesn't really matter at this point though. We're chasing the Caps, who have 6 more ROW's than us with 13 to play (12 for us). That's way out of reach.

WPG.... I don't think they'll be there in the end.

G:

-ENNIS!!
-Foligno!
-Leino
-Myers
-Sulzer
-Stafford
-Roy
-Gerbe
-Tropp

Great puck possession for most of the night, solid forecheck and cycling, takeaways, solid D, lots of players showing some great escapability (especially Enzo & Leino)

B:

-Giving up that late GTG
-Weber made me cringe more than once
-Officiating. Missed calls for both sides.
-Still fighting the turnover bug.

U:

-White. I hate that kid. He's threatening to take over Subban's title.

Someone pointed out earlier that if Washington goes slightly over .500 at, say, 7-5-1, we would have to go 9-3 to leap past them.
