I have to say Boruque is slowly becoming my favourite player. His play today was just perfect
His physicality is refreshing, he is so important to the team. The guy create piles of chances and puts makes the opposition nervous with the puck thanks to his big hits. He has gone from "buyout" to core piece this season.
on another note these teams are playing to ****ing kill each other. not sure we'll survive another series if we win this. we are the smallest and lightest team in PO's. Can't play like this for 4 series
Pretty close to a textbook game. Scored when they needed and played another pretty solid defensive game except for a few breakdowns 2nd half of the 2nd where Price made a couple show stoppers. What I loved is they took it to Ottawa physically...White and Bourque leading the way and Prust Moen Tinordi Markov also doing their share.
.. and all is well. life is good. such a delicious team effort and victory. in this case, back-to-back games worked to our advantage. the emotions of last game still fresh and had an intoxicating effect on our energy, focus, and determination.
i'm so relieved carey came up big. just loved the handing of the tooth moment, and then leisurely stroll back to his net.
we've shown that if we drive the net hard, cause chaos, get dirty, you can get to anderson.
mostly everyone stepped up and played hard.
we rallied after the disappointment of last game and i feel very proud for our guys. just a beautiful victory.
Oh I don't disagree with you there. I still remember that one punch KD but I can't seem to quite recall the Sabres' player. However, Lats did go for a few big checks tonight. He took a bit of a run on PK who dodged it (as he usually does). I'm not saying that he's somehow turned into a physical player but I think it's good to remind him of his true nature.
It was a Sabre his last name started with a P just can't think of it right now.
He's more gritty than Lapierre ever was, I knew this guy would step up.
The thing with Lapierre is that he never was able to answer for his antics. White can. Does anyone remember how Lappy always kept mentioning how he was taking boxing classes and yada yada yada... but still ended up getting his rear handed to him?
I honestly don't miss him, but I wouldn't mind him out there instead of Army.
