Just finished watching. I don't really think the scoreline really shows how dominate an effort this was. It was 1 way traffic the vast majority of the night. They only had 4 ****ing shots 32 minutes in
Still astonishing how much better this team is with Bolland in the lineup.
We're all the panic-ers from last night at now???

Just got back from the game, it was awesome. Had no idea I was going till 5pm. Buddy called up with an extra ticket in the 200 level and a media pass to the Governors Room for the sponsors banquet. Hell yeah I wanted to go I told him. Free tickets, free parking, free food, free drinks, free bag of hawks merchadise including a sweet pullover and hat, got to hang out and take pictures with Savard, Espo, Bull and Stan. Those guys were awesome.
Me and my buddy asked Savard if he wanted to join our over 30 men's league team and he said no, but then ended up having a long conversation with us about a trip he took to Vegas for Wayne Gretzkys fantasy camp and how he partied the whole time and could barely skate, but went on a run in the casino and won 25 straight hands of blackjack. Espo asked me if I was a paison because of the size of my nose. Had to break it to him gently that I was jewish and not italian.
And to top it all off, great game!
To think, at 5pm I assumed my night wold be spent on the couch listening to the annoying cackles of Eddie and Pat and instead I got to do all that.
Kruger blocked a shot. In no way did he show more than Pirri, Smith, or even Saad.
Hatred is a popular impairment to ones vision.
A 4th liners job 1st and foremost is to do all they can to keep the puck out of their net. Pirri cannot hold Kruger's jock in that category. Pirri's (and Kanes) lines saw lots of periods of sustained Stars pressure Friday night. Both were better Saturday. Kane's line by having Hossa come down lower (covering Kane's flaws) Pirri's line by having Pirri in Rockford and Kruger that spot.
