Sucks we called up XO and Nosek just to sit in the press box and ruin their Christmas plans. I'd love to see Nosek replace Andersson soon
Yeah. Blash probably just wanted them to practice with the wings since the ahl break from games is a little longer.. they'll get a Christmas break, just not as long of one. And I'm sure they're fine with it. Hopefully they learn a thing or two while they're here.
If Larkin is at +40 with 50-60 pts, and Panarin is at +1 with 80 pts, I take Larkin for the Calder. Larkin has singlehandedly taken a team to a different level and is the mvp of his team. Panarin is not doing that. passing to Patrick Kane.
-scored a lot.
-having two good goalies is awesome.
-Smith kicked some ass.
-We didn't blow a lead! (Regulation win, whaaaat??)
Lots to like about this game.. Marchenko looked good too imo. He pinches in well, something a lot of young defencemen seem to struggle with. He may need a speedy partner to make up for when he gets burned but I'm pretty happy with his progress so far.
