Coach Noel - Road trips. Positive things he saw during games. Power play prowess. Line juggling. Compete levels of all lines. Players recognizing things needed to win. What did he like better about Wheelers game tonight? Play of Enstrom. First impressions of James Wright. Does he feel for Capitals coaching staff? Consistency of Evander Kane.
Didn't see the game. Can I get a somewhat detailed report over it? The highlights were nice.
Everyone played awesome. No, seriously. Even Postma was pretty decent. Clitsome was his usual shaky self for the first half of the game, but I didn't really notice him in the latter half, which I'll take as a good thing.
Washington was bad though, really weak effort from the goaltender on out. If anything I think the score flattered them.
Nice to see the Jets win especially on the road. of course beating the Caps home opener where they won for the last ten years. Hope we see Kane and Wheeler score lots of goals. And hope they work on the defense because it sucked last year.
only saw most of the second and half the third period, but I was impressed with what I saw. Especially Kane. ON that one play where Kane banked the puck off the board past the Capital's defenseman and to himself, the old Kane would have ignored Wheeler and skated around the net and tried the wraparound which works 1/100 times. The new Kane, who we saw tonight, recognized Wheeler was in a prime position to score with the Caps' goalie focusing on him(Kane) and made a beauty pass for the easy goal.
