I wouldn't feel confident about a loss unless we were up in the game at one point in time.

Disagree thought he played one of his better periods.

Pretty sure that was Boyes.

That was actually a pretty entertaining period. If it keeps on like this, I will be pleased.

Boyes turned it over leading to that 2 on 1

Maybe I'm a bad fan, but I don't want to win anymore this season.

No matter what way you slice it, that was the best period from these guys in a while.

Funny or scary? Finley has had a shift with Weber and Grags.

I thought that he looked pretty good on most of his shifts. His work to get things going for Weber's goal was great (from the steal, to the crisp pass to the point, then dashing through traffic to screen Halak). he had another good play to Grags late in the 1st.

Maybe my eyes are that bad, or Ruff needs to break up the Leino-Stafford-Boyes line so I don't get the numbers confused! There were a couple plays where I saw him playing soft, but the ensuing chances didn't turn into much. Maybe I'm looking into it a bit too much...

I remember a number of games early on in the season where he played much like this. I don't know what happened to it.

So.... we're up after one? I'm glad to see that our scorers are finally scoring. Mike Weber hadn't scored yet this year, so it's good to see him finally getting on track. We're really going to have to rely on our best players like Weber to score for us and lead the team out of the darkness.

Good pass by Roy...but it was to Gragnani, whose shot is stronger only than Gomez's :

Since when does height determine how good you are?

Hal Gill sucks at fighting and Tootoo is amazing.
