Damn Giroux looks good. He fumbled the puck at the line and rather than do something stupid that leads to an odd man rush the other way he calmly dumps the puck behind the net and heads to the middle of the ice. Then he checked the guy along the boards, took the puck from him and make a clean pass to Hartnell at the blueline for a clear shot at the net. Smart smart player. That's something that really only Powell has also been able to do from the guys we called up this year. All the others have repeatedly done stupid things that led to scoring chances against and they've done it a lot.
He really has. I thought he did a poor job defensively on Recchi's disallowed goal, but otherwise, he's been extremely good and made several important defensive plays.
JXC must be in ecstasy right now.
