Big win.... Still issues with our D but for tonight that was an important win and Kessel was a beast!, all Bozak ever does is make us better, Bernie gave us a chance to win and JVR led by example. Did I mention that was a big win.
Watching Sportsnet connected. They are leading off with a story about the Avs running out of money and who will be out. Flashes to Stastny and O'Reilly. Story next...
watching hilites of new jersey crashing montreal net with no call but JVR gets called for breathing on price??????? Good news though.....habs LOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I must get my meds. Bipolar disorder symptoms off the charts. manic phase. Or I could wait to see if the game tomorrow brings me back down
Three things I would like to see that I think will help our "corsi" issue:
-move Clarkson to second line, shift Lupul back to LW, dump Raymond please (Clarkson needs to play 15 minutes to get out of his funk and be the guy we signed, a leader;
-make a deal for another D man with a similar game to Gleason, then make sure Rielly and Gardner always have a Gleason or Gleason part two playing with them (use Franson, Raymond and perhaps Reimer as bait to find Gleason II, aka a really good defensive defence man);
-enjoy the positive impact Bolland will have on line three and four as we can move Mclement to 4th line, play Kulie and Ashton with Bolland (perhaps Holland on the wing instead of Ashton), with Ashton, Damigo, mclement on 4th line (or the odd face puncher when required).
I think this lineup results in a much better overall result.....with Bernier in net.
@TheBlueTruth Still issues, but some life anyways. Effort level have gone up the past few games.
@Loric76 great comment. This is th kind of stuff we need! I loves it bi
@Loric76 We needed a guy who is willing to jump in front of shots rather than squat down and hope it misses them.
@Loric76 the new and improved Mark Fraser
@Loric76 I was expecting a shootout
@Loric76 The Raymond-Kadri-Kessel line was our weakest of top 3
@Loric76 He's not wrong.
@Gozo played close to 20mins aswell......good stuff
@DeclanK some fool recently said a high likelihood of a trade by March 5th between Leafs and Avs, and that lots of talks b/w them
@Bruffins I agree, even more impressive when they showed the slow mo replay, absolutely sick hands on that boy.
@Loric76 he plays poker too.
@Bruffins DELETE DELETE
@Bruffins u should be banned for doing that,,,,,,fkn awful
@Bruffins screw off
@Bruffins i got in shit for doing this..
@Murph2417 not if they scored on PP
@rustynail Bozak looks like he's thinking about that Gardiner giveaway that made it 4-3.
@Gozo can't fire him now, he has us back in a playoff spot lol
@Bruffins Howbout No.
@MaxwellHowe Vape on.
@Coldincowtown is there a Corsi Cup (Corsi denial back strong)
@Bruffins lol, A January regular season game win?
For sure, but fun to play with the right tele and tube amp. My point was I felt like the lyrics of mixed emotions explained how I felt - happy with the win, unhappy with RC
