He has been scratched? Bondra has been on the checking line and Semin scratched all this time? OMG!! the line had 9 shots in the first period. completely dominating. The Semin goal was brilliant and a couple of other near goals as well. No bashful rookie either....get the puck...shoot the puck!!
I got to see replays and it was a very nice goal......good moves. However, I thought Grier's missed goal was one of the finest fakes and moves I have ever seen.......he just missed the open net.
Lang's move was great. I think though that Grier missed the puck not the net. At least the way i saw it, he fanned on the one time attempt.
That happens a lot in the NHL and Grier is not a soft handed player.
But, I think its worth mentioning that Grier is now consistantly creating scoring chances short handed and that in time the puck will go in for him.
