Calgary, Detroit, Vancouver, then Minnesota for me, I don't really care about the oilers
the rivalry with the wings is gone for me, minnesota is too boring for me to care about , edmonton because of hearing how sick they are and how they are a dynasty in the making, vancouver because im surrounded by nucks fans day and night , and they're the only team that clearly embarrasses us game in and out.
Landy resorted back to Viking mode, thank you Sacco for telling him to just go north and south. Landy dominated this game kind of like Forsberg used to do. Its like Landy just decided that he was sick of losing just like Forsberg used to and said screw I'll just go win this one for us.
Varly wasn't great but made the big saves when we needed them. Thats what I like to see, even though he had a rough game he was mentally strong enough to pull it together when it mattered.
Duchene looked tentative at first, understandably, but turned it on in the 2nd and 3rd, nice solid game.
Even the team drunk looked tolerable.
Defense is still pretty atrocious.
The thing I liked the most tonight is the determination that the whole team had. Too many times over the past 3 or 4 years I've watched us pack it in after giving up a few early goals. Tonight looked to be headed in that direction as well, but we collected ourselves and played smart hockey, and just kept fighting for loose pucks and we got some bounces to go our way and we pulled out a game we shouldn't have won.
Lastly I'm not sure how this thing with O'Reilly is going to work out, still not overly thrilled with the way he and his team acted through this ordeal, but he is a very good hockey player that can help this team win games. Hopefully he comes in shape and ready to play he has a lot to prove as he is now getting paid like a top line guy.
Now that Landy, and ROR are back and Johnson is looking to be back soon were not nearly in as bad of shape as we were 2 weeks ago. In a short year anything can happen now its time to make a strong push towards making the playoffs.
