Same here. I have no expectations for tomorrows game, but hope we at least battle hard, and please for the love of god no more injuries

I mentioned this in the Armchair Thread, but I would like to see he Canucks claim Kevin Porter off waivers tomorrow morning. W/C with experience, and even with Pelletier and Archibald coming in, we're still short a natural forward. He makes minimum wage and could be depth for Utica once everything is said and done.

St. Louis hasn't played in a week. Literally. If we're going to win tomorrow we have to take advantage of the fact they could very easily come out flat in the first period.

Yes, I would be a fan of acquiring Porter.

had we been closer to being healthy, i wouldn't have agreed with this idea

however, you gotta do what you gotta do. Kevin Porter is still a serviceable NHLer

He's had so many chances though, going from Phoenix to Colorado to Buffalo.
sometimes have him confused with Ryan Stoa

Henrik Sedin is probably among the most underrated players in the league.

Unreal how both Sedins get so many ****** penalties called on them undeservedly. Not many other players get that treatment, let alone stars.

Me thinks that Torts will push the boys tomorrow and give them Sat off and a light practice on Sunday in prep for Monday's game. Torts has too much drive to not do anything.

How many times did the refs have you guys shaking your heads? The number of hooks, holds and interference non-calls from this game alone...

Seeing Torts the past two games in the post game interview has just made me like him even more. Seems like a great guy, with all his charity work. Good to see that he got to catch up with that Liam kid too. You can tell Torts genuinely cares about the kids.

It's at the point now that Shorthouse casually mentions the non-calls during his play-by-play: "Henrik's hooked at the Devil's blue line, and play continues back up the ice ..."

Wait we won?
I was wondering this too. With the way he dekes, he might as well just shoot it. He'd probably have a better chance of scoring.

Yep. Definitely a lot of "hooked / taken down, no call" tonight. Need the local media to continue raising a stink about it.

Gutsy win, albeit against a team that is clearly struggling to find an identity. Kes with another 25 minutes, giving him 55 in the last 2 games, which is absolutely unbelievable in non-playoffs for a forward. He is now #2 to Sid in TOI/G for forwards. Hank is tied for 3rd with RNH (?). I continue to be impressed with our defense, specifically Tanev and Stanton, neither of whom ever seem to take games off. Successful road trip, regardless of tomorrow. A point would be an absolute bonus.

Ridiculous.
Yeah, I don't know what happened but the schedule-makers sure ****ed up on this. Holy.

Saw the team, torts, management and media leave and get screened by TSA after game. Obviously right on the plane to STL. Kesler, Garrison, Bieksa stopped to talk to friends and fam. and obviously Chiggs too. Talked to Schneiders wife, hung w her a few times in van, she said her and Cory like Hoboken and are adjusting well to it.
Just my two cents. Had a few IPA's so I was half paying attention really.
Thanks for sharing, as always.

Ugly, but 2 points is 2 points. Luongo with a great game, so that is good. 5/6 of our bottom 6 out; not as good. If this keeps up, Alberts is going to be our 1C before Remembrance Day.

Also, Does the NJ Arena double as their morgue? It was quieter than a Florida game in February.

Well said, my sentiments also.

Ugly game tonight. Lucky to get the win imo, Schneids let in two horrible goals. But hey they found a way to win again so I'll take it. Lu with a good game I thought which is encouraging.
