You guys are forgetting Malkin didn't play. Not sure if he's going to be ready for the playoffs or not but he's an ENORMOUS factor. I would have loved the win to cap off a great night though. 23 years it is. Go Wings!
You're forgetting Cleary will be back in the playoffs.
This is the time of year he lives for. He doesn't care about the rest of the season. He rises to the occasion in the clutch, when most of us would fail under similar pressure.
Nah. Guy is always out of positioning, and his saves only look amazing as a result of that. Kinda like Hasek, but he's nowhere near Hasek's league. Gustavsson is too wild in his style. No wonder he gives up so many bad goals.
This. He plays like Hasek except sucks at it. He lost us the last game we played in and he lost us this one, in both game modes. He overplays pucks and is constantly out of position, I can't stand that in a goalie. I guess resting Howard was more important than winning this game, but I'm still pissed because we needed this win to stay ahead of Columbus.
