Nice to hear those guys can carry that team, even this far. Losing Pearson is huge. They essentially only have three threats healthy: Scheifele, Telegin, and Behenna, possibly the rookie defenseman Ekblad as well.
Going toe to toe with a team that has scoring depth like the 67's do is a big testament to there maturity and endurance.
That's the thing with a 2 line team that's turned into a 1 line team due to injuries.
FYI this was not a 2 line team. Now we're down to a little more than 1, but hopefully get at least a couple of the forwards back on Monday. Scheifele, Telegin, Behenna, Ekblad, McNeill and Niederberger will sleep well on the bus ride home...especially the D - they went with 4 for the whole OT.
He would fit so well to our Barrie collection Little, Burmistrov, Scheifele, Telegin
Probably need a lottery pick (and maybe even win the lottery) to get Ekblad. I'm sure the Jets want to (had beter be) be doing better than that in three years time (Ekblad is 2014 draft eligible). Now, Tanner Pearson would look good in Barrie West Blue. With his injury he may fall to the 2nd round, where he would be a steal. The injury shouldn't have any long term effects, but has taken away his ability to shine in the playoffs...
