I am sooooo upset at that Abby penalty at the end... and I think it is all his fault. I saw him making a move toward net and I was screaming NOOOOOOOOOO!! because I knew he was going to go into the goalie.
Great puck possession game only allowing 20 or so shots.
DD is a stud and just keeps getting better.
We got more shots and Luongo robbed us on a couple.
Abby has to finish that pass from Tatar... he shot it right back into Luongo, just had to elevate it.
Speaking of Tatar, with the exception of one careless turnover down the middle, he played an awesome game. He should never see the bench again. Awesome compete level, likes contact, takes shots, skates... love it. But the best play I saw, which probably went unnoticed by many was when he was skating up the right boards and Kindl (might have been Smith) drove by him with the puck... he immediately peeled off and went to the point to play defense. I'd say he's all growns up and knows how to play Babs game and stay in the lineup.
Smith has to stop taking stupid penalties.
Someday we will score more than 2 goals... thanks Howie
Ericsson will be missed, but is anyone else just absolutely blown away by DeKeyser right now? The kid hasn't even played half of an NHL season and looks like a top-pairing guy already. What an incredible signing.
I totally agree. I think the silver lining in Ericsson being out might be that DD can get some chemistry with Kronner and stay in the top pairing... maybe putting E on the second pairing with Kindl or Q would give us some depth.
I just look at DD and the way he skates and makes decisions with confidence and it makes his signing look like we hit the jackpot. I think someone else posted that he is basically our top 10-15 pick, but we got him without having to draft him.
