What I love about these wins is that the boys are surviving but at the same time while surviving in a way that makes it obvious they still need help on D.
They still aren't making good first passes, still having trouble clearing the zone, still scrambling a bit... but surviving with strong work ethic and good TEAM defense from our forwards and from Roloson.
Lowe may see 2 goals on the scoreboard but he'll still know he neesd to get us help.
He's trying to do a Stefan... lmao open at the blue-line and continues to try and skate it in.
Your still *****ing about the reffing after that "holding" penalty on smith? Even if you take away the Oilers goal on the pick, then take away the Sharks goal on the PP, 3-2 or 2-1 it makes no difference.
I am so freaking happy right now. Hejda was huge again, you can see his experience under pressure in international competition shining through. He does not seem even the slightest bit fazed to battle it out in the corners with Marleau and Thornton, made it look easy a few times against them.
There's no doubt in my mind that Hejda should draw in ahead of Tjarnqvist for the forseeable future.
Couldn't agree with you more. A great game from him and the other fill ins, I was thoroughly impressed.
And (of course), after I've been bashing Nedved left and right, he comes out and shows me up like crazy tonight. He was all over the place and did exactly what I said he needed to do, create offense on his own. If he continues to play the way he did tonight, he'll fill one of our needs and allow Lowe to completely focus on a d-man. As if it wasn't already high up there on his to do list.. it was only a headline in today's paper.
