Nice part about these last 2 games (I was unable to see the previous CBJ game) is all the goals were really good ones.
No garbage. A mixture of solid efforts, Good passing and some really nice shots. Fun to see.
I'm really enjoying the passing plays lately. A whole new look.
Odd thing about Parise's goal. Sure it made it 4-0 but he had no emotion after it. I wasn't expecting a chest to the glass moment but a freaking smile would of been nice. Now that makes me think of last
They took care of the business. Pretty consistent effort against weakened teams, as it should be. Staal's line players' combined TOI 47:46, Ek's line players' combined TOI 47:16, Galc's line 42:20 and Koivu's line 38:08. Stalock sharp. Let's see how they continue this against stronger teams. How about Fiala on that PP goal! He was like a hound dog, going after, even diving after that puck to keep the PP alive. I think Parise could be a real nice mentor for Fiala, in the sense that both have that
i noticed the 4 points you made.....
Agree that there have been some real nice primary assist plays this past week.
I thought about Zach's lack of emotion as well. I ended up guessing that it was showing respect to Columbus in a lopsided game. Still agree that at least a smile was in order.
I noticed Brodin make a similar power crossover move vs Columbus. Amazing!
And I totally agree that Brodin (and Stalock) bailed out Dumba in last night's game. I took a double ta
