Lot of OEL for my Swedish readers :)
The boys are back in town. Someone better tell the boys that.
If you take away the first period, we win the game. After those three goals (!!!!) in the first period, we shut the Ducks down. Even the first period started with us dominating play and having a lot of good chances to score.
But chances are just chances and we lost the damn game.
Boedker feels like a breath of fresh air. He was up to 9 minutes of time on ice. All together now…… wwwwwwwooooooooowwwwww.
I feel so damn bad for Stempniak. I wish there was a way to reach into his mind and hit the reset button. He needs to forget that he hasn’t scored. He needs to forget his struggles in Toronto. He just needs to be Stempniak and loosen his strangle-hold on the stick. Come on kid, you can do it.
But alas, life doesn’t equipt with Nintendo controls.
Speaking of scoring, Wolski needs to kick his ass in gear, preferably the scoring gear. Once again an invisible game for him. 3.8 million. Just sayin’.
Uppy had a good game away from the score sheet. His mouth should have been second star of the game. He fully drew a penalty from Sutton solely with his mouth, I swear to God.
Speaking of Sutton……
You mess with the Finn, you get the horns…….. shoe horns…. shoved where the sun don’t shine there Bucko.
So weird to not have Vrbata out there. Vrby, we need you. And we need you to score. No pressure, huh?
Sami had a rough break. On the day we waive Yonkman, Sami had a rough, rough break. Don’t be surprised to see Schlemko playing for a while. I don’t really know what we’re doing with this defense. I don’t really know that they know what they are doing with the defense either. That’s a little scary.
I don’t know, I just don’t know.
What I DO know is that when we have a crowd of 13K, we need to play better hockey.
