Great game!!! Wow, what a hell of a game. Giggy was on his game, and what a nice little goal by Sami Pahlsson/Paulsen. I also want to express how impressed and happy I am with Travis Moen. The man is a warrior.
Jesus, the ducks are damn amazing. I watched last series and thought Detroit played better for the most part but Anaheim is dominating, intimidating and killing the sens. Ducks deserve to win this right now and its not even a contest.
The Ducks need to carry this onto the next game and take game 3. Take the whole life out of Ottawa and not give them life at all!
It would be great to have the Ducks show how old school hockey is played in front of a huge Canadian audience. Although, sadly, versus won't carry any more of the games... it's NBC. I'm still skiddish about the whole "Preakness Game". bleah.
Pahlsson=GOD. No doubt he's the best checking line center in the league. That line has made guys like Spezza and Heatley fold like cheap suits. Emery kept the scoreboard close, but this game was dominated from start to finish by the Ducks. They have to keep up the intensity as the series shifts to Ottawa. The Sens will receive a big boost from their fans. Two wins away, Ducks just have to keep playing their game.
Also, wow, before the series started, I was told that the CASH line would be unstoppable. At best they would be kinda slowed down 5 on 5, but would light it up come PP time. Well, two games in, and they are quite possibly the worst line on either team.
It is still early, but, wow, what Pahlsson and the league's best checking line have done is amazing. I know the voting already occured, but, damn, Pahlsson deserves that Selke.
