Another game winner coming for Monahan!!
I mean, they're still puck dominant most nights; but yeah, that offence/deadliness has kind of dried up a tad. Frolik's been fighting it recently. Since that injury he hasn't looked like himself at all.
I mean, if they're playing like a 3rd line, we're still a one line team. Jankowski's been less than average, and the fourth line only shows jump when they do the youth infusion instead of the Brouwer designated black hole.
More stat padding post haste
Monahan racking up game winners
At least the Oilers kept the Avs to 1 point.
Gillies or Rittich on Saturday?
I think Rittich is toast
He is not going to get another start unless Gillies failed
We won we won we won!!!
Nice to have a comfortable win for once. Gillies got better after that nervous start. Needed these 2 points badly. Good stuff.
I imagine they go back to Ritter; but it really doesn't matter. Which back-up level goalie to go with
Chucky will hit 30
Go back to Rittich for next game. If Smith is down for the count, ruining Rittich confidence wont do us any favours.
Monahan ties Ovechkins career high of 11gwg in one season.
Esposito holds record with 16gwg in a season
Also. Why did it take so long to try putting Bennett on the top line?
Hopefully the Oilers can do us a solid and sweep their upcoming California trip.
You are seriously selling Ferland short. He has been just as consistant as Monahan this year with the difference being power play opportunity. NHLers all go through ups and downs. You shuffle lines to get all of them going. It's a game of confidence. Even Johnny has been streaky with his goal scoring.
Anyone think one of the reasons the Coyotes suck is because of extreme handedness inbalance at not only forwards, but also on defense? I'm willing to bet if a few players became RHS on that team (So same skillset, not a "Trade Keller for Brouwer scenario"), the Coyotes would have at least a few more wins.
I’d probably play Rittich and then Gillies next game.
Very pleased with the push back after that dreadful start. Gaudreau's immediate return after losing that chicklet obviously paid immediate dividends. What a game by the new top line. Super impressive. This is what I expected pre-game. Glad it worked out. When I look at our roster I don't see a bubble team at all. I don't care what spot we make it in, I just want to get into the playoffs and show that we can make some noise. I realize matchups matter and not playing the ducks would be nice, but **** it. Feed us Vegas, let's see what they can do in the post season. Still probably what? 45/55 make it/not make it at this juncture? I still feel like we will find a way, but need to find a way to be more consistent game over game to have a shot. Anyone know if Smith is dtd or wtw?
Just realized the Yotes didn't even let Familton play against us, poor guy hasn't played a game for them yet.
You play the better goalie, which is Rittich.
No, I love Ferland. I've probably been his biggest supporter on this board along with @snipetype for over half a decade now .
The guy's got a wicked shot, and a good set of mitts; but he is prone to some cold snaps, and has been even in his junior days and in his pro days (AHL). His struggles on that top 6 have always come from changing his game. When he's on, he's got that hounds nose for the net, he digging pucks in corners and he's carrying with confidence. When he's off (like he is, he's been bad recently) he almost looks like he's going through the motions.
I agree on the PP time. We just have no space for him on the first unit. And I agree with Monahan being streaky too; but his game is indiscriminate to tell the difference.
His game is on? He doesn't touch the puck, finds quiet ice and scores a lot of goals.
His game is off? He doesn't touch the puck, finds quiet ice and doesn't score.
