Well it's 2am here. It was a pretty good game, Nabokov played good but for the most part we contained Big Joe and company and managed to get a point, nothing to be ashamed of. Sure it would have been nice to get the extra point but one is better then none. Have a good one everyone and the Pens will wear out the Kings for ya's tomorrow so you guys can have an easy game Sunday
I say Pazzy if he is ready .. Freddy played back to backs then has to fly to Columbus and play at earlier game time on sunday .. .. BUt I say that all should depend on what time they land in columbus and how much rest he can get ..
I am going back to what got us here .. PASCAL FTW .. LETS GO JACKETS !!!!!!
It occurs to me that perhaps our team has more faith in themselves than their fans do. I include myself here too, of course. We (a lot of us anyway) started to feel like a "lost cause" about 6 games back. We talked about games being crucial to making the playoffs then. Of course, they all are at this point, but what I am getting at here is the difference in the way our team has played these last 2 games. Maybe they thought "that" was when crunch time began, and felt enough confidence to believe they were still in it, long after a lot of us fans had lost hope. If that's true, then more power to 'em and GO JACKETS!!!!!
Having said that, I hope it's not just what someone said about how good they start playing once they feel the pressure's off.
I missed the first period, but from what I seen we didn't play too bad. Naby made some great saves, some shots we could have had on him, but I think it was a great effort against a good San Jose team. 3 out of 4 points for this short road trip, hopefully it's a sign for our looooonngg trips we have coming up. Hopefully this is what to expect (effort not result) in the next couple of months, and not the eggs they layed after the break.
Very entertaining game. Lots of pressure in the offensive zone. Too bad Chimera didn't get an assist for the Gordie Hattie. I'm fine with getting a point on the road in San Jose, where we've only one once ever, but we really need to come home and grab 4 points from LA and Chicago before the roadtrip starts.
