Would rather see Mitchell on the 4th line and PK. Think PMB should take a seat in the pressbox tonight in Vancouver.
how did that final PP without Bouchard look?

I believe Yeo put Gilbert out there on the last PP in order to not give up a shorty with 4ish minutes left in the game.

I bet the Vancouver coaches are watching film, and saying, watch-out for ZP's power move from behind the net, he does it every chance he can get.

Just watched the game. Still lazy and slow passing game. Defensively okay but you can't win a team like the Canucks with such poor offense. Gotta up the tempo in the o zone.

We need more players who are willing to skate through bodies in the middle of the ice in the offensive zone. Way too many guys playing outside the circles.

I'd spend the first five minutes dumping the pucks into corners and then smashing the defensemen to get them off their game, then start working the middle of the ice.

Also I'm totally fine with Bouchard in the press box for the next game. Activate Spurgeon, send down Scandella, and we need to find room for Zucker.

The team doesn't shoot unless they have zero traffic or there are six players between them and the net, so either the goalie can see it plain as day, or it never gets through.

They need to start using single defenders as screens and shoot when the puck has a chance to get through and the goalie can't see it coming. That will at worst create rebounds for some much needed second chance opportunities which are at this point, non-existent.

Wes Walz reported that Parise was "Sick as a dog" while playing in the Nashville game.

You still have to be "on" to produce in a shootout and Zach has come through more than once in our shootouts this year. He largely contributed to our win last night with that amazing move.

He has been battling illness while playing recently, that is a fact.

If he had close to the same flu I had 3 weeks ago, I have no idea how he played during the Nashville game. I had a fever and severe body aches, fatigue for 4 days, respiratory symptoms for nearly two weeks.

I give Parise credit for even attempting to play. NBA players are dropping like flies due to what appears to be very similar symptoms.

Parise's move in the shootout was amazing.
So was Koivu's! That was one of the dirtiest moves I've seen from Koivu, didn't know he even had that move

Parise playing through the flu is still far more effort than most of the healthy guys on the roster.

We've seen Koivu fake the backhand and go forehand before...we know he's going to do one or the other...and he STILL pulls it off.

The Parise move was just plain filthy. Just...ugh. Wow.

Screens for shooting defensemen would be nice. Currently it seems like everyone jockeys for position behind the net, with any other forwards crashing the boards to be the next guy behind the net instead of anyone ever hanging out in front where a goal might be scored. The one big exception to that being Dany Heatley who gets there just in time to slam into both teams leaving the zone because nobody helped him get his skate guards off.


Highlights of the game for me:
Brodin spinorama
Konopka hugorama
Cyclorama in the offensive corner four times in a row at one point late in the game. On the fifth time around someone in a bear suit skated the other way and then they all turned to give chase and crashed through a hedge. Yakety Sax was enjoyed by all.


Other notes:
You know what? No more power plays. Just slash somebody at the faceoff circle as soon as we go on one. Trip an opposing player. Catch the faceoff puck and pet it like a bunny. Whatever you do, do it immediately and spare us all.
Parise's shootout goal looked beautiful. Then Hudler's looked easy. It's too bad for Calgary that he is so determined to get back to the bench and hammer out more of next year's Christmas toys, but those quotas aren't going to meet themselves.

I liked when Falk took down Iginla and another player in front of the net.

That was sick! I hope we go to a shoot-out tonight and Koivu pulls the brakes on Lou. Lou has seen the top self backhand move for 6 years now.
