I'm in Boston, listening to Chuck on hurricanes.com. How do the guys look ... are they hustling?
Ok so far. At first there was some room to skate, and we've had a few looks (but not many). No real good ones (as I type we have one). But its tightened up some. I like the fact that we are moving pretty freely (but then so are they at times). Not seeing anything much to denote any trends.
What was LaRose thinking??????? How DARE he not make any effort to get out of King Marty's Royal way? LaRose a clown...thinking he should after the puck while Brodeur is coming his way. You should have gotten atleast 18 minutes in the box.
Good for McCreary for not being manipulated into making a bad call to please the unhappy ones. Could the Devils do a litttle more to try and draw one? It's not subtle enough. Hopeufully the refs keep that fortitude all the way.
But more importantly, and this is stating the obvious, but when we beat NJ 3 out of 4 this year, we did it by forcing them to play our style. Thats tougher at their joint, but we cannot win this series with our first two lines not producing. Give some credit to their D, even a lot of credit, but when we get chances we HAVE to bury them. Thats our biggest storyline so far this series.
Neither team has taken charge here, Brodeur is playing well but seems edgy, and Cam needs to tighten up some with our lack of production.
