The minute we went to the shootout I knew we'd win. I was thinking.. "after 7 years playing with Turco, these guys know the book on him right?" First shot Brenden Morrow (who's absolutely horrible at shootouts) beats him five-hole and I knew we had it in the bag. Turco's five-hole is bigger than Crawford's hair spikes.
**** yes. Amazing comeback. I think the end of the first period might have been the lowest point in our slump, and finally these guys broke out of it. All we needed was to face the guy who cost us two seasons of playoff bearths.
Kari kept us in this game but it's still so bloody easy to come to our zone and get the cycle going.. Our big guns need to step up and start to challenge Turco.. Robi also needs to show the other D-men some spark and play a perfect 40-45min
WE NEED THIS:
HAH A young me says hello..
Suddenly in the 2nd all the big guns from Chicago went missing when we started to shut our blue-line and got some pucks deep and away from Turco. Luckily Robidas got his goal before the break and with the pressure we got even Keith and Seabrook playing like rookies.
OK the Morrow goal was probably over the crossbar but after that they only had the Kopecky shot and nothing else. We had our chances to win it on the PP but all in all after a comeback like that I don't even care that the Blackhawks got a point.
Now on to the CBJ who have played well every time I've seen them. Tough game, hopefully we get Petersen back to that one. Vincour I think should be taken to the Canadian tour, he was awesome.
