That's setting the bar too low. Emelin has offensive tlent.
yes and i hope to see him on the pp soon.
JM need to move pleks back down to the mid boards where he is more effective. ive said it before ppl on the forum have said it and RayFerraro said it all night on TSN. i just dont understand what JM is waiting for to realize this.
put emelin on the PP point he has a smart shot.
i guess JM does not trust him enough yet. but after tonights game i say he deserves more ice time!
Frankly, those who think Montreal can/should dominate for 60 minutes are the ones with 'rosey coloured glasses.' In a league filled with parity, that isn't going to happen. So feel free to be sad for a long, long time.
I clicked on NHL.com to check the score since I missed the game and saw that we won 4-0. I noticed in the boxscore that Darche had zero PP time and Cole racked up some PP minutes.
I am going to compliment Jacques for that. Was Pleks on the point?
martin apparently lost his **** when we got the "too much man" penalty.
and by losing his **** i mean: slapped the glass behind him and murmuring stuff to himself.
to be fair, there should not have been a penalty and emelin (was it not him?) should know better than to pass right in front of the bench during a change.
Seriously though. I thought I saw two guys go off, and only one come on (Cammy). Even if one of the guys didn't get all the way off the ice (I'm looking at you Gomez, 'cause you were last guy gliding to the bench), there weren't too many men.
What a horrible 3rd period no wonder we tend to lose games in the third. Carolina is absolutly terrible When you get outshot in the third by a team like the Canes you really need to re evaluate what you are doing in that period.
I'm guessing your a glass half empty kinda guy. Your post made me look positive, and that's something.
As others where, I was impressed how the young D held up last night. Gorges was a beast out there, hitting, making plays, etc. That being said we were playing a sub par Carolina team. I just hope we can continue on this stretch and keep moving up the standings. If we can be in the 7th or 8th spot when Markov gets back, who knows how much more we could move up with him running the PP.
