Just watched the VAN/EDM game. Jay-zus, is Glencross a beast! Glad that the move has worked out so well for him. (The game itself was an all-out fight from the first drop of the puck right up to the final seconds. Unreal.)
Saw that game too and was very impressed by the GlenX line that dominated playing Van 4th line but also the few times they played the Van 1st line. So again good deal for both teams and a for GlenX.
Buffalo beat Tampa Bay with an amazing comeback in the third. They were down 3-1 with less than ten minutes remaining, tied the score at 3-3 and won in OT on a perfect passing play during a rare OT PP.... The Sabres are determined to make the post season.
Late edit: Vanek had a Hattie and Spacek made the OT pass to Vanek for the OT win.
BTW: we should have never, ever let Spacho go..big mistake.
I found this an interesting response from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Pens beat writer to a reader question regarding neck guards in the wake of the Zednik incident - I've only quoted a portion of the longer exchange, the part which I find humorous or ironic or something --
...there are plenty of players who have no qualms about playing without a visor, and probably some who would be willing to go on the ice without a helmet. But you will never, ever find even one who would consider leaving the locker room without his protective cup.
