Anton Stralman replaces Van Ryn/Colaiacovo/Frogren against Montreal?
Ain't happening. Knowing RW this won't happen, especially when Stralman ain't THAT great defensively. What a tactical genious RW is, that game book of his has just too much thought put into it. GO RW!!
Tlusty, Hagman, Grabovski, Kulemin, Moore, Van Ryn and Kubina were exceptional tonight.
Our top line needs to be better. Antropov cant win a draw, Poni and Blake were just plain bad.
I think Tlusty was our best youngster on the night. Fast, strong on the puck, good in both ends of the rink. Schenn was good too, but you can tell he needs to be stronger and faster, and he will be incredibly effective, more so than now.
All in all, a good game, glad to see we actually held on.
What a game that was, totally different team then last year's version. Kulemin's goal was a beauty and I was really impressed with the Tlusty, Hagman, Grabovsky line. That line looks like it could do some serious offensive damage this season.
It is going to be hard sending Schenn down when he plays like that...he really is NHL ready.
It was great to see such a good team effort and a well deserved win. Man, is it ever great to have hockey back! It thought it was a good game all round but I was especially pleased with Tlusty and Steen. Kulemin's goal was the best moment of the game. Schenn was very impressive.
