+ All the things
Crosby wont reach even 100points this season. For sure.
bet this thread doesn't even reach five pages...too bad, most of the disconcerting issues remain the same.
Obviously you like to see them win. But all the bad slop is still there.
I thought Letang, Malkin, Engelland, Neal, Jokinen and Sutter had strong games. As did Bennett.
I thought Maatta struggled but got better as the game went on.
I didn't even know Kunitz was playing until I saw him on the powerplay.
This was definitely Letang's best game.
Solid win over a bad team. Not much else to say about the game as a whole.
+ Dupuis scoring on the third line
Of the four goals scored, only one (Letang) came from one of the normal line combinations. The first came when Dupuis was with Sutter and D'Ags, the second came on the PP, and the fourth goal came from Sutter with Jokinen and Bennett.
Bylsma's preferred line combinations didn't do jack.
+ Bucky the Skate Stitcher (there is not a close 2nd)
True to form Errey says something funny every 18-20 games. Can't wait till he says something funny again in February.
- I was looking forward to a protest
don't underestimate our ability to bicker for 5 pages about what is and isn't a good game.
I think you're a moron for thinking it would even go five pages... creep.
congrats on the win pens,aleast ya'll could score,while the preds still suck
I'll be surprised if it even makes it to three
yah but it'd be nice to see the same old argument rehashed in the warm, fuzzy afterglow of a win rather than the hysteria-induced panic of a loss.
then again, i haven't been around for a while. it's likely that everyone has been thoughtful and articulate.
Oh I know... I was just goofin' on IC a lil' bit.
It's Friday night, too. Most normal people are out doing stuff.
Now I'm sad.
+ Letang, Malkin, Sutter
Two points against a team that looked dead after we equalized. They've been outscored... what.... 19-2 in the their last four? Don't want to put too much into this, as I saw most the same old problems. Just not the opponent to hurt us tonight. But two points just the same. Lets hope it instills some confidence.
lock 'er up
Yeah... like I said in the GDT -- if it gets them out of the doldrums... I'll take it.
Though I think that's being a little naive. But oh well... I'll try to maintain some positivity.
+ Martin is back and he looked good. It's good to see that he can still carry Orpik after whatever that injury was.
+ Letang had a good game, being sick agrees with him.
+ Neal, Sutter, Bennett and Jokinen had good games.
+ Malkin looked really good but the not scoring is becoming comical.
+ Crosby looked good in the 2nd and 3rd.
+ The team didn't throw a tantrum after not scoring right away and being scored on first.
+ Bennett was sighted with Crosby.
+ The hilarity of Bylsma's usual lines not being responsible for the win.
- KCD still exists.
- Maatta-Letang doesn't look good.
- Maatta didn't have a good game, he improved but overall.
- Dupuis scored, it was on the 3rd line but I doubt DB sees it that way. He was still really bad on the first line.
- Orpik continues his form.
- That fight.
- They showed our team injuries...
-- The same old problems will carry on.
+The line combos after the PP's. We scored twice after failed PP's with a collection of our best non PP guys, and if this happens another 10-15 times, we might see some line changes.
+Healthy F lineup means we aren't playing Glass on the 3rd line. Either BB or Dupuis makes the third line a heck of a lot better.
++Letang did not play like a nut.
-Maatta is playing like a guy auditioning for London. Let's take bets on how many more games like this he will get before they put him on the bus down.
+ The woo-ing at the end sounded downright satanic.
I noticed that. I swear I heard blood-curdling screams at some point in the second period, too. It sounded like Jason Voorhees was making his rounds through CONSOL.
vabm8 is right to point out Martin though. Forgot about him. Very solid in everything he did. Enormously important for us.
Yeah Maatta isn't going to have too many games worse than that. Looked like a 19 year old kid tonight.
It's evolving. They're making use of drones and dissonant counterpoints to expand the depth of its emotive textures. Someone is going to have to do an album of field recordings of this unique and sophisticated folk vocal music.
