Looked like Weber was covering his man. Josi, not so much.
They both hovered around Brouwer ... neither bothered to communicate ... luckily being on ice for those PP goals allowed doesn't hurt Weber's plus/minus. A few more games like this and he might reach even ... which actually would help any case for the Norris considering only three minus rated players ever won it.
I know he has had plenty of rough stretches this season and a ton of horrible goals, but the more this season goes, the more confidence I have in Carter Hutton- I actually felt confident in the shootout- when is the last time we didn't allow any goals in the shootout??? I hope he is back next season.....
And it still completely boggles the mind that there is ANY negativity whatsoever towards Shea Weber's play this year- (a fluke deflection off his stick is a negative???- seriously?)
Only on this board can something so ridiculous happen.
Weber's monthly ES totals in January and March both outpace his ES numbers for the first 40 games of the season combined. As I said, good second half of the season so far ... below expectations throughout the first half.
I agree, based on watching him all this season at home. Weber is playing the second half of the season like we all knew he could play the whole season.
Watched him battle intensely behind the net with Ovie during the first period. That intensity and passion is part of what Weber was missing the first half of this season.
I am not negative about Weber........ He's not a golden boy... none of them are. They're millionaires playing a sport, judged on their intensity, passion, leadership and production.
If people are so blind to think he hung the moon and can never do wrong, bah........
I hope he wins the Norris. He got robbed a couple of seasons ago. But it's a popularity contest, really.
Both Weber and Hutton were playing poorly at the beginning of the season. Now both are playing at the top of their game. Glad to see both of them playing well. Also glad to see the team clicking/playing as a team and winning some games.
