+ Chris Kunitz. This guy is an absolute beast
+ Tomas Vokoun. Coming in after an awful first period and standing tall
+ Sidney Crosby. This is just Sid being Sid tonight. Shutting flyers fans up early in the 3rd
+++++++ Keeping our nose to the grindstone and finishing this game off with a mass amount of character
In the long run, it may be important that it happened this way. This team needed to learn that it could play defense. There isn't really any other opponent that could have taught them that then the one whose scored a billion goals on them in the last year. I think the last two periods were the first look at this team as a contender. They played solid defense just like the cup team did. Once they got a netminder back there that could stop the trash that came through, they looked solid.
And F Fleury. While the rest of you were strutting around the last 2 weeks about him shutting down crap teams, i knew what was coming. Once a turd, always a turd. I'm glad Vokoun is playing better. We need a goalie come playoffs. Really don't which one it will be right now. As long as one of them can handle it.
