Lookin good ! Bryz is slowly settling in which is a nice sign, and our crop of youngsters continue to impress ! Simmonds had a heck of a game tonight and the other night as well....He is looking like a Hartnell knock off with better speed.
Pretty solid win in the end. Team defense has definitely improved lately, though we still make a few too many easy mistakes. We are playing with a whole bunch of rookies though, so it's kind of expected.
Hopefully this will get Giroux and the first line going. They had another down game, but on the bright side (outside of Giroux' two points, and Jagr giving up the goal to Roo): Hartnell always does his job, Giroux continues winning in the faceoff circle, and Jagr definitely looks better than when he came back from his injury troubles the last time.
Bryzgalov had a solid game in net. Some really strong saves and generally looking a lot calmer than earlier in the season. Hopefully he'll continue playing like he's done the past few games.
Coburn had a strong game as well. He was really good on the pk.
Wayne "Gretzky" Simmonds played great tonight. Whats that 5 points in 2 games against the Preds this year?
Dr. Jagr gave Giroux what he needed.
Lilja was.....there. Good job drawing a penalty I guess.
Another great performance from Bryz. Hope he keeps it up. Solid game from all.
As always thanks to MSE for his dedication and hard work on the GDTs.
Simmonds and Schenn were awesome....just love how determined this team is compared to last year...
So far no wall for the rookies...Read has been anything but overrated and no long term slumps so far and don't foresee any unless we really get rocked by injuries although it's hard to say we haven't this season already...
Sweet. If anyone asked you who would have more points at this point in the season Mike Richards or Wayne Simmonds, who would you of picked? I realize he has 7 more games played, and Richards doesn't have the best linemates, but I never would've guessed.
