-Vanek wowowowow, I jumped out of my chair THREE times (pass to Ennis, pass to Cody, last goal)
-Ennis woke up in the 2nd, thanks to Vanek. Finally.
-Foligno looks like he's back as well. Great sign.
-Miller was a wall when it was needed most.
-I would really like more of a 4th line.
-Weber was good enough, but his breakout passes are scary.
Vanek... he doesn't always score Hat Tricks..... but when he prefers Boston
Pominville - solid game
Foligno - destroyed the Bruins on the Penalty Kill....
Ennis - when out with Vanek just unstoppable... and they both missed an open net
Miller - With the Sabres playing on a 5on3 PK when Leopold and Myers on the ice... kept them in there
Myers: Are you lost?
Leopold: Do you remember how to play defense? You play the body and try not to flail on the ice like a fish
Me: For picking Stafford in Survivor.... should of just taken my Vanek game first game.
Chara: Looked bad tonight
Rask: No side to side game huh?
I'm not seeing enough Scott in the Good column. What he did to Thornton in period 1 had a huge effect on the game. That was what the nuclear option is all about. "Hey, I just took your enforcer out of the game, do any of your skilled tough guys want to risk it?" The Bruins physical guys went to sleep after that. You think McWhatever wanted to start anything with 13 seconds left to go with Scott next to him?
With that said, Vanek was a beast. Plain and simple. I've been critical of him in the past, but he is the heart of this team at this point. This guy wants to win more than anyone on the ice.
