Man this team now has two legitimate PP units ....woo! I can't remember when the last time that was.... Interesting mix of Hossa, Kovalchuk, Tkachuk, in the 3rd on the PP and then Belanger, Kozlov... Earlier in the game Hossa, Kozlov, Belanger did well on the PP.
Zhitnik was great, did a lot of little things that helped the guys out - finally no more scrambling in the defensive zone, at least not much of that tonight! There was a lot more confidence back there - I'm relieved.
Looking forward to seeing Kovalchuk and Tkachuk out there again - nice Ukranian surname line out there, look out! and don't forget Zhitnik back there as well .... Chemistry obviously wasn't quite there yet, .... although can't be expected just yet.
Two points... gotta get back on winning ways at home!
I wonder if DW has got anything else up his sleeve for tomorrow. Maybe he can pull off another small trade that will pan out well, kinda like the McCarthy trade last year. Maybe we can get rid of deVries or Hnidy.
