I wish filppula had the shot of his fellow countryman Selanne, filppula hardly ever snipes a shot, has he ever scored on a slapshot? it's mostly rebound-goals, open nets, backhands, close around the net-goals that he scores

I didn't get to see the game as I was forced to go see HP7, so I'd like to see the kill as well. Reading the comments from the CBJs board it sounded like it was a dismal effort on the BJs part.

I missed the Filppula goal, my wife got home from grocery shopping and went into labor. We heard the last of the game just before we left for the birthing center.

We brought home a beautiful little girl that my wife named Olivia Cleary Lowell. Happy Holidays my fellow Wings fans.

Congratulations and wishes for much happiness.

Congratulations! I like her name :) You could have waited for the game to end :P That reminded me of when I was with my sister and she was in labor, we were watching the Family Guy episode when they did Star Wars (I think, not a fan) but they both said "We'll wait until this is over and then go to the hospital" :lol: Good thing her labor wasn't progressing quickly.

With Filppula I think it all comes down to his confidence. Like Babs said last night, he thinks he's really good, he just has to convince Fil. He had a good but underutilized shot. The goal against Phoenix last year in the playoffs when he shot it from outside the circle on the boards was a snipe, but we rarely see that type of shot from him.

The better Filppula does, the better he is going to get. It's all confidence from him, he has all the tools.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

OMG congradulations!!! You should have made a poll so LGW could give her the middle name :P Olivia Bertuzzi Lowell, has a nice ring to it!

His first playoff goal ever has slapshot snipe over Kippers left shoulder far post.

Every year we hear this. But Flip hasn't gotten any better. Sure, he's decent and he's not hurting the team, and the line he plays on is great, but I think it's safe to say he's hit a plateau in his career. This is as good as he gets.

Thanks for the well wishes! You guys rock. I guess I'll go ahead and introduce Olivia Cleary Lowell, not even a full day old yet. IF she gets a sister, it'll be Lilja Mae Lowell. Then we'll have Livs and Lils. Go Wings!

Who wouldn't wish that, but they are very different players. The sniping shot is one of the few things Filpp could really improve on.

No kidding; Selanne is basically a Finnish Hudler with rocket skates. Filppula is FAR more comparable to Koivu, a two-way center with a significant tendency towards passing, than to Selanne, a skilled playmaker and scorer with defensive weakness.

Did Eva just compare a sure fire, first ballot hall of famer to Hudler, not Hudler to the HOFer, but the HOFer to Hudler?

Really?

C'mon man! Your man love for Hudler just got silly, just plain silly!
