I was at the game, I must say, the Dogs put the least threatening 46 shots on net that I have ever seen.
Gallagher looked great, real excited about this kid, he needs a big body that can meet him in front of the net when he muscles the puck there himself, or just create space for him. No secret this kid loves getting into the dirty areas, make it a little easier on him.
Tinordi all around solid, would be nice to see him put more muscle into guys, make it hard to go into a corner with him. He used his reach decently well tonight, but he has to play like he's 6'6 a little more, I know it's hard for a 20 year old kid to get used to though.
Beaulieu looked like a extremely talented 19 year old kid out there. He's starting to simplify his game, but he's getting caught making taking some stupid penalties. The coach showed some trust in him at the end of the game though, using him plenty as they were trying to tie the game up.
Mayer is a bag of holes who looked shakey on the simplest of shots. Not sure what anyone can see in this kid. He doesn't have it.
Oh, and Holland was good. Needs to work on making sure his passes get through, very smart player. Deceptive shot, creative passer but they're sometimes a little weak.
I'll be watching it once it goes on demand on hockey streams! Looking forward to it. Hoping with a bit more firepower in Leblanc and Desjardins in goal the Dogs can replicate the effort with better results tonight.
Dogs have 2 shots and gave up a goal 10 seconds in. I just tuned it, but it's intermission and I probably won't be able to catch much more, which sucks.
actually they gave up the goal 10 seconds before the end of the period. Same old same, they can't keep any pressure in the offensive zone. It is so easy to breakout and attack versus the dogs, I hope Therien will address that.
