What a gutsy effort by our guys. Dan Cleary has been deserving of the whipping boy title this year, hell my 4 year old can play better than he has at points this year but that guy has been great for the last 2 weeks. Pure guts and hard work and it showed tonight. Bring on the Hawks, I love it......oh and to the so called fans that counted us out after game 5.....we know who you are.
I hope we don't have to look back at that 5 minute power play as the turning point in our season but it pretty much summed us up this year...just too many complete lapses in urgency. If I knew the PP would've been that bad I would've declined it lol. We controlled that period.
Time to sit Samuelsson and move Bertuzzi to the top line. Bert looked fine tonight. Better than Sammy did playing with top guys.
I don't understand you or the feeling on Sammy in general. People will whine whine whine that we dont shoot enough and we put Sammy on the top line, he doesn't make a glaring mistake all night, takes 4 shots on net, plays good in his own end. Is he our best option for the 1st line? Of course not but a guy who plays mistake free hockey is ok with me.
