Yes, Bouw pinching in was pretty bad. But I do believe Andy should have had that goal. When whoever it was, (think it was holmstrom) skating the puck into the offensive zone, you could see Bouw behind gliding in, not even hustling to get back to his spot. Was pretty brutal.
I just saw the replay...about to put the daughter to bed and watch the game. We're reading books, right now. Am a bit distracted...off to bed she goes.
I wonder how much of this team's heart has to do with DeBoer. I get the feeling that McCabe, coming from a team with a rich hockey tradition, may also help develop a winning attitude--or, considering the mediocre play of the Leafs for a season (or two?), at least passion for the game. Irrespective of the source, though, we're looking phenomenal.
I haven't seen Zednik play this well in a long time.
A bad pinch here or there...we still need to keep doing it. If we get scored on via a bad pinch,oh well. If you don't want risky pinches from time to time, we will score as many goals and dump the puck like in the 1st period with virtually zero scoring chances.
