This is great. Howie with some big saves to keep the game scoreless, and Goose being Goose.

Glendening will score a goal tonight. You heard it here first. If for some reason he doesn't, he will at least hit a post.

I'd go as far to say that of all acquisitions around the league during the trade deadline, us getting Legwand has been the most important

Shootout win for the Caps in San Jose. They pull back to even with us, but we still have two games in hand. I don't know how the hell the Caps are doing what they're doing, I just know it needs to stop.

 

Nothing to worry about. They'll be Toronto and Columbus' problem soon enough

#2499440 How does Kronwall not have a concussion?

Posted by marcaractac on 22 March 2014 - 11:29 PM

He looked like he had his bell rung, but not every bell ringing shot to the head leads to a concussion. I've been knocked senseless many times in my life, and have never ever sustained a concussion. My guess is the shoulder took a lot of the force into the boards. 




#2499437 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by marcaractac on 22 March 2014 - 11:24 PM

Yeah, what the hell os going on with ice time lately? I dont understand Babcock but I guess it usually works out to some mad logic.

 

 

Interestingly enough Nyquist only played 10 minutes tonight. Weird use of our best scorer.

 

 

Let me start off by saying Babs is a great coach, and down the stretch the last two years has been nothing short of amazing. However some of his line combinations, and the amount of time certain players get is mind boggling to me.

 

The thing is, with our best players out, Babs is doing what has to be done to give us a chance to win. Thats why you're seeing the Glendening line with so much ice time. That line is out to play against the other teams best players. The Mule line is the line the other team will play their best shut down players against. When the other team is playing their bottom 6, that's when Babs will send the kids line out. Nyquist is our hottest scorer, and Babs is making the most of his minutes. 

 

It is easy to scratch your head looking at the stat sheets. But when you really start looking at line matchups and what not, it makes a lot of sense. It is very smart coaching. And it is exactly why Goose is on the kid line and not the #1 line.

We won because the PP scored. Plain and simple.

 

Can't stop our ENFORCER!!!




#2499380 Franzen calls out team

Posted by marcaractac on 22 March 2014 - 08:07 PM

I think bart has been looking good the last few games.

 

Bert has been very effective defensively playing with Glen and Miller.

there's still like 10 games remaining and I don't think we're going to win them all. Just focus on securing a playoff spot first.

 

10 for them, 12 for us

The ACC is so much louder in the preseason lol


This.

Njd are 6 points back, I'd rather them win before a team with 1 point more then us.

 

And because of this, I'd like Toronto to win in regulation tonight. Give us a chance to leapfrog both the Leafs and Habs if we keep winning.

with all the kids getting better with each game it'll be interesting who sits when the injured guys start coming back.

Do we have a limit on the cap still or is that now lifted. I can only presume that Jurco, Sheahan, Pulkkinen,Ferraro

and Emmerton will go back to GR's and maybe Glendening stays as Babs likes him. To me Sheahan should stay 

up because him with Gus and Tats can be a dominate 3rd line for us. 

Hopefully they can keep going and get us in the post season when most of our injured guys should be back.

At the end of the day the kids have done great, but when you have the guys we have out it could be any other

teams top 2 forward lines.

 

Glendening-Sheahan-Miller. Boom, 4th line. You'd have to think Andersson is the odd man out when we get healthy. Nothing against him, but he is such a slow skater. Sheahan can more than make up for the points Andy would put up.

So...

We can win matinee games, just as long as they're on FSD?
