Please wake me up when there is anyone on Rags that can score beyond Nash. Nash did everything he could and even more, but he cannot beat us alone. Leafs on the other hand had complete team effort. The better team won in this one. I bet there were at least 2-3 teams that cheered for us in this one.
not impressed with Reimer. Leafs score enough goals for him to win most games but he's never really made many saves that he shouldn't.
What about the stick save right in the 3rd? He saved that goal...not O'Byrne...and he stuck out his pad against Stepan or Nash (can't remember) on the PP, he also saved a goal right after the Rangers scored to make it 2-1.
I think Kessel would be really good from the point on the PP. His playmaking abilities are now proven and notice how he likes to curl out from the half-boards to get a better angle for his shot? He has that from the point. He also wouldn't have to play along the boards as often which is a weakness. The move would put the spotlight on his D but I think he's played relatively well defensively this season, especially of the the rush. I'd love to see the move for a few games so he can showcase his skill from there.
Okay, so, if we win next game (Or get a point, doesn't matter), the game against the Habs will become less important, leading up to the next most important game of the year, vs. the Devils. That game is huge for our playoff hopes, and considering they have two tough games coming up as well, hopefully we can maintain that 8 point gap.
Anyway, great win. Kessel showed what I say all the freaking time, and that is that he is an elite right winger. Was every bit as good as advertised tonight.
