Great win. Very happy to go into the break with a win (as well as 3 in 4 games). Henrik stepped up big, Betts definitely deserved that star..just an all-around great game for a guy who plays his ass off every night.
You hate to go a week without a game, but at least it's on a winning note..2 straight bad losses going into the break would have rough.
Betts is a beast on the PK and that's why we can't trade a guy like him for more offense because you need a 4th liner with some offensive abiliy with a strong defensive minded attitude. Just like you can't teach a player talent, you can't teach someone to have balls
Gomez played the best game he;s played all season. he was fast agressive and looked like a player that we saw from last season. Tonight, HE was the catalyst of that line.
Naslund played like the old player from the beginning of the Prague trip and that's great to see him starting to score again.
Lundqvist, nothing has to be said about.
The defense looked awesome tonight. Kalinin is stepping up and Redden is looking much more consistant. Mara and Girardi have been great all year. Roszival has been very good. Staal......need I say more?
Fritsche was invisible and i thought we had 2 players on the 2nd and third lines. Voros was god awful. What does he merit over Korpikoski? speed? hell no! Size? at least Korpedo uses it. Scoring ability? 5 months ago. Korpikoski has to be in that lineup. Same goes for Fritsche. Prucha has to be in that lineup because I saw nothing.....................Literally. At least with Prucha there is energy that bounces around. I have seen nothing from Fritsche.
