Now that was a very pleasant change of pace.
That's five games in a row that the boys have played with heart.
Great to see the effort make the pucks bounce their way for a change.
...and a small, insincere thanks go out to the Oilers.
All the boys played well but I must admit that Ohlund is beginning to win me over again.
He's been solid since Salo & Bieksa went down, held his own against Phaneuff and. though I'd have prefered him to drop the gloves, I still agree with his slash tonight.
It's one thing to suck it up and take the man advantage when the game is on the line but, when it's out of reach and they're just trying to cheap shot you late in the game, a physical response sends a more forceful message.
It'll be interesting to see their next meeting.
Will tonight carry over or will both coaches have their players on very short leashes?
...and what did they force-feed Boogaard? He's HUGE !!!.
I thought he was beating up on Burrows until the closeup showed Willie getting his face washed.
Smart call by the ref to get him out of the game. He could be some kind of nasty.
Now I'm feeling really odd.
That's two games in a row that I've approved of the reffing.
Is Bettman on holidays?
Great to see the team hitting its stride as we enter the thick of the schedule.
