On a plane- need updates and more commentary. Please!
We're outplaying them. Both of our goals were total flukes, but we've had tons of good chances. Weber, Goose, and Erat are playing awesome, Fisher and Wilson look awful. Mike Smith is playing like his TBL self. Hali got hurt but is playing now. Weber injured Andrew Gordon with a slapper.
Fisher's pass got tipped by Smith into his own net....he made a bad pass, not a good play. I love goals as much as anyone, but he didnt do much.
Smith was squared to any possible Fisher shot. If he let's one go at Smith, it's into the crest, held, and we get a faceoff. Instead he goes for the pass to the wide open player and Smith gets his stick in the way to break up the pass, which deflects in.
Another case of when he does the RIGHT thing, he gets criticized.
Still cant believe Smith isnt in tonight over Tootoo, Yip, or Wilson. Hell, over Fisher the way he is playing tonight....
Smith hasn't accomplished much since week six of the season. Seven goals in the first six weeks, seven goals ever since ... with PP time. Halischuk is the smart choice for a 4th liner. Toots is generating tonight and staying out of the box. Wilson is the guy so many have been ranting we need in. Smith isn't taking Fisher's spot and doesn't fill the role that Yip does. The 4th line tonight is a true energy line with a bit of offensive punch.
