Gaborik and Nash were ****ing outstanding tonight.
Power play needs to be fixed, that **** was brutal. Nash doing everything by himself out there, and the 5 on 3 is such a joke at this point - I seriously thought the Bruins were going to score a shorty on that.
Hank needs to have that third goal, tough bounce off of Hagelin's stick though.
I love watching Nash play.
Pretty clear Torts is not putting up with growing pains, at all, in the shortened season. Kreider was quick to hit the pine. Might honestly be better to find a vet winger out there on the cheap and let Kreider get big minutes in the AHL the entire season. Compounded by the fact that now our forwards are playing extra minutes in the first half of a back to back... not a fan.
So great to get that first W. Keep it rolling tomorrow night in Philly.
The Good: Nash-Richards-Gaborik, Gaborik hatty, Nash is a gamebreaker, Pyatt is a great addition, Del Zotto has been our best Dman, Staal had a good night.
The Bad: Defense and Lundqvist. Hank was decent, but I don't like that goal from Horton THAT late in the 3rd
The Redden: Flowerplay
FIRE SATHER FIRE SATHER FIRE SATHER FIRE SATHER FIRE SATHER

Each game getting a little bit better but they're still lacking in a lot of areas. Notably they're doing a terrible job in the defensive zone with the puck and pulling the dump and chase at times when they don't need to
Always feel a bit bad for guys like Kreider who get benched cuz the game is so tight, but he'll learn and Torts will get to trust him.
Also, why did they sign Halpern if they're not going to use him on faceoffs. The Rangers were horrible at faceoffs and it cost them at least 2 goals
Richards had a pretty ****** game outside of that assist, and Nash did some awesome things but needs to finish.
well that was awesome. Nash, Richards, Gaborik are pretty scary together.
Pyatt chipping in nicely. Why does Torts not trust Kreider with more time? Did I miss a turnover? I was gonna make fun of Rupp then he had a good shift with Hagelin and Boyle keeping the puck in the zone
anyways, phew a win now lets go on a winning streak
Our primary scoring is here to stay.
I love how this year the only deadline acquisitions we have to make are depth trades.
I also love how Gaborik is able to fly under the radar because of Nash.
1) A center who can win a faceoff
2) A coach to teach them how to run the PP
3) Torts needs to stop playing 4 d-men and 3 lines when they had a 1 week training camp, apparently he hasn't learned why this team was so worn down in the playoffs by the time we faced NJ
Great game for Gabby and Nash though, does Biron play tomorrow?
