If you don't elevate, you don't accumulate.

How'd u like that sexy little backpass from Pahlsson to Higgy for the goal?
Sound defence AND vision? Huh... I can see how a complete player trumps a one dimensional one come
playoffs...especially in the 3C slot.

Not to toot my own horn but anyone notice how as the game goes on the Avs are slowly losing the dominant forecheck? You just cannot maintain that level of pressure for an entire game.

Decline the power play.


Rather than decline, take the 5 on 4 and immediately slash the best PKer on the ice across the ankle or wrist.

I'm a bit disappointed that I have to keep paying attention because of the 2 quick ones.

I checked out mid way through the 2nd period.

Face might get you 4 or 5 mins and stitches only take 10 minutes. A broken wrist is the end of the season.

Or ankle.. Matty Ohlund style.



Sigh, I miss seeing Ohlund stand up the opponent at the blue line.

Edler does that from time to time but not enough for my liking.

Ok, Kassian definitely looks bigger on TV than from the nosebleeds at WhateverPlace. Moves well for a big guy.
