Yup. Just hoping the Blues slow down since they're on a back to back.

Did you hear Sacco's gameplan? "Need to control the puck more, funnel more pucks to the net, keep it simple..." He pulled out every hockey cliche you can imagine. Not good on the execution though.

Probably don't want to send him down too early and not be able to bring him back up. I'm sure he is sent back the minute Landeskog is back.

Sgarbossa's better than Pulushaj.

Our fwds are back-checking!

Hunwick's been our best dman so far again (we need to get something for him at the trade deadline ).

I'm fairly sure that the way this game will go is that the Blues will shoot whenever they can and Varl's gonna have to do 35+ saves.

He has said the same thing in every tv interview since 2009.

Well, here are a few positives from the first period:

-Varly is Varly

-We didn't give up a goal in the last minute of the period

-We don't have to listen to Pierre McGuire

Wasnt reading earlier, did anyone catch the announcer using the same joke twice?

Halak hasn't been seeing enough rubber, and Varlamov has seen enough for both of them.

2 minutes apart said the exact same thing word for word.

The one not playing with Bordeleau/McLeod/Mitchell/Olver/Kobasew

Haven't seen Palace on the point either.

Varly was excellent. Duchene is the only guy that isn't invisible in the offensive end. Hes the only guy stl is afraid of. Mcginn has had a couple good chances. Other than that, pathetic.

Not yet.
Apparently our forwards can either forecheck well or backcheck well, no in between.

Shouldn't it be "Lolliott"? or something similar? "lolelliot" is so dumb but I guess I should expect that from you.

Its hard to have a solid opinion on Pulushaj so far, he put up some points... but there has been a few shifts were he looked so weak
