I was just looking at the event notes on nhl.com. Av's blocked 24 shots in this game. Unbelievable.

I'd make the 4th line Tucker-Hensick-Stewart. It'd be slow as a turtle race but it's not like Hendricks is better than anyone else on the line

No. Hensick is completely useless as a 4th liner. Either put him on one of the top three lines or keep him in the press box. I don't blame the Avs for keeping him around since they'd have to risk him on waivers and the team remains too beat up for that. I really don't think he'd clear.

BTW who is the first defenseman to call up in case Foote can't play? I'm assuming it's Peltier.

This isn't NHL'10. Hendricks is better on the 4th line than Hensick is, yes.

Now that I'm thinking about it, he was ruckusing around the net during the confusion that led to Wilson's goal--one which earned him an assist--and I'm recalling a decent shot on goal. But to me, it just seemed like he wasn't flying out there and had trouble controlling the puck for stretches.
Gotta watch the highlights man, Wolski had a one timer that Kipper barely got a piece of that went straight up into the air behind him and jones almost batted it in.

It's Matt Hendricks, not Jim Cummins. Hendricks is a better grinder because he knows his role as opposed to Hensick trying and failing to play the role of a grinder.
