EDIT: Miele for Portland with the goal. Got behind the defense and went forehand-backhand with a sweet shot.
EDIT: wow, Portland gets a second about a minute later. A shot just inside the blueline. Will have to see it again, not sure if Zatkoff was screened or not. Sloppy defense by the Pen's. Mormina and Grant, not looking that great there. 2-0 Portland.
I know I have mentioned this a few times, but damn it is so much fun watching Morrow skate. He is one of the most "beautiful" skaters I have seen in all my years of watching hockey. A please to watch. So smooth, and powerful. He reminds me of Zarely Zalapski in that regard, (but let's hope he can put it together better than Double Z did). I think he will. He is playing with a lot of confidence right now.
EDIT: Still not sure if Samuelsson is anything more than a marginal prospect, but I am very impressed with his progress from a couple years ago.
EDIT: Gibbons using his considerable speed to get a steal and a great scoring chance behind the Portland D. The puck eventually went in after a stop by the Portland goalie, but the play was ruled dead.
Baby Pen's going on a two man advantage. Morrow get 1st unit PP time. He has looked good.
Ughh.....too many east west attempts through the box. As I am typing this, Dumoulin with the goal. (will rewind) Sweet wrister by Dumoulin as he collapsed down low near the faceoff dot, due to all the open ice on the two man, and he went high left corner.
EDIT: Damn, Gibbons got boarded fairly hard on that one....lots of blood.
EDIT: Goncharov gets 5 and a game for the board on Gibbons.
(where the hell is Zen?)
EDIT: 2-1 and we still have 15 seconds on the previous penalty, so we have a two man for that period of time and on a major after that.
Nothing going right on this 5 minute PP. We get one shot on the major. The same amount as Portland had while killing it.
EDIT: WBS with the early 3rd period goal to tie the game. Mormina with the shot, and the rebound comes back out to him and Joey M. buries it. Sweet goal. 2-2.
EDIT: put game on pause, just getting back to it. Trevor Smith scored, initial shot was from Morrow, I don't think it made it to the net, Smith picks it up and buries it. 3-2 WBS with its first lead of the game.
EDIT: Reese playing a very strong game.
EDIT: What a gutty performance from the Baby Pen's. They get the W, a 3-2 comeback win. They kill a late PP, to secure the victory. Hynes showing a lot of faith in Samuelsson, putting him out there for the PK, and the waning seconds of the game.
Good stuff WBS.
