this game was painful to watch on the internet. so i did alot of listening and far less watching.... BUT
- kyle greentree left on a stretcher after getting hit from behind. this does not bode well...
- john armstrong is effin' good. he's seriously mobile like backlund (or juice or foppa). he is my horse for sure, alebeit a longshot for the QC this season.
- matt pelech either had a terrible game, or he's just not a good hockey player. i'm gonna bank on the former but it was pretty much shocking. other than delivering the night's biggest hit, the monster looked absolutely awful (penalty, losing pucks, falling down etc). he will not be happy with that outing and i expect he'll bounce back on monday.
- mikael backlund is effin' good.
- brett sutter scored the game's only goal, shorthanded, topshelf: keeping on a 2-on-1.
- dan ryder is glad to be back, you can just tell...
- john negrin is effin' good.
- keetley was rock solid when he had to be and ended the night with a well-earned shutout.
- tj brodie and mitch wahl are ones to watch
- greg nemisz is effin' good.
so what once seemed an empty cupboard actually has some viable prospects !!!
