Kozzy's goal was nice, he basically flipped it into the open far side of the net from the right circle because Jose wasn't covering the angle right and he was screened by his own defenseman. He's looking less "post-concusion" tonight and has a lot of jump in his step.
Metro's doing well with Hoslov, and Haydar's doing okay too (better than Slater). Boulton is better than Kapanen, imo...always has been this year.
The D looks solid, but Andy's looking really slow despite making some good plays. He's had a few good shots on net.
We're finally doing what I've been clamoring for.
2.) No dump and chase
3.) Go behind the opponent's net so as to give it to our points. We're finally using the points again!
The most important thing is the forecheck - it's like the theory of playing for field position in football. Make it harder for them to break out, and you won't have to work as hard on defense. Before we were always collapsing. This started to change in the Buffalo game. It's a very good sign.
i totally agree on the forecheck...and hate the dump and chase! (because we tended not to chase LOL)
what a game!!! I got a little nervous in the last few minutes when it seemed like the might force OT but that EN was awesome...whew!
