I voted for everyone because it was a total team effort tonight and I want to see this a lot. One of the most complete games I have seen in a while. BTW Hamonic AND Amac should be options, they played the most minutes on the team and were going against Crosby AND Malkin all night. Also Hamonic deserves it because I can't believe he even played tonight.(Logged 25 minutes tonight when he was a game time decision.)
i couldnt argue with that even if you put a gun to my head.
one thing ive noticed about the penalty killers this year as opposed to last year, the current crop of penalty killers DO NOT freeze the puck. they keep the action going. i remember seeing 2 stopages during a penalty kill tonight. one was when nabakov caught and held the puck, and the other was when nielson deflected the puck into the crowd. if you can keep a steady flow to the game while killing penalties.....you will have success.
Well he was +2, shut down Malkin's line and solid on the PK. All that being said I probably should have voted Nielsen for the same reasons(although he was even but shut down Crosby) but I guess you expect more out of Nielsen. lol
Grabner. It's amazing how much he's morphed from last season. He was VERY passive last year and now this time around he's moving all over the ice, and his stick is always active. Great to see how much he's blossomed. Hope he keeps it up.
