I really like the way this team is playing they never give up & never quit until that final whistle. Could they score more goals? Yes, but so could every team in the NHL this season. They are first in goals against in the NHL & I said it a hundred times that that was a primary goal this yr after finishing close to last in that category last yr if they were going to be a better team. Goaltending has a lot to do with it but playing a good two way game by everybody contributes as well.
Love the heart of this pesky team. Reminds me of the overachieving 96-97 team but this team is much better and more entertaining. Add Karlsson, Spezza, Michalek, Cowen, and Anderson to any of the non-playoff teams and do they all make the playoffs?
Looking forward to watching this team 3 years from now when - hopefully - Lehner, Zibby, Silf, Noesen, Puempel, Prince, Stone, Ceci et al are all major contributors.
