Enjoyed this one.. Exciting game start to finish. Fleury held them in it for 2 periods.. Other than the Blooper goal by Edler.
.. Great game by Crosby.. A tie game and no way are we winning a skills competition against Malkin, Crosby and company.. Nice to see 3rd and 4th line goals .. Kassian keeps improving and Richardson/Weise looked good too.. Something wrong with Danny? Just doesn't look sharp on his shots..
I think the last couple of playoff exits have really rattled Daniel's confidence.....and more than just his, probably a few others too.
He hasn't been the same player since Duncan "Elbow Drop" Keith knocked him silly and only got 5 games in what was a VERY clear premeditated elbow to the head.
He was also beyond pissed off at the penalty call on him in that last game against the Sharks.
I think both him and Henrik are a bit disillusioned with the NHL at this point.....inconsistent officiating, poor review process with poorer enforcement. They play clean hockey, they get completely abused by opponents, and it often goes uncalled.
Daniel has always struck me as being the twin who lets his emotions effect him more. He'll snap out of it if he can score a goal or two soon. It would also help if he just pulled the trigger more often.
