Someone has to come up with a gimmick for Muellers flow. Attach some hair to the plastic rats!!! Mueller looks to be the most impactful player picked up from this year. I'd love to see him signed to a 2 year deal at seasons end.
We played some gritty hockey tonight, won faceoffs, puck battles, passed tape to tape and unleashed our lethal but elusive powerplay.
Mueller-Hubs-Shore looked really good together. As did Versteeg and Flash together. Kovalev with a snipe, keeps him on pace for 10-12 goals which is more than what we could ask for from him.
I was really hoping Kopecky or Matthias would score, very happy Kopy could get the empty netter.
5 goals in 1st game
5 goals the next 5 games
6 goals in 7th game
Hopefully thats not a pattern developing. All in all, i feel this was as close to what we looked like last year and our guys are getting healthy.
Did anyone else think to themselves, I didnt miss Weiss out there tonight?? I'd hate to see him go but to be honest, i didn't even notice him gone in that game.
