Wonder if Larkin stepped up and said something or what happened in the team meeting. Either way, they didn’t mail it in.

i found myself reminiscing tonight..about the good ol days when we were dominating like tonight.

When was the last time we dominate the shots clock like this ? Don’t remember.

A magical effort from start to end, every lines had their say in this win.

I like the new position on the PP, Cholo high along the board a la Frk (with better results !) From over there Cholo controls the play, wether he gets a shot away or pass it. Too bad our coach doesn’t come up more often with strategy like this, 
Simply a great player whose getting better every game, specially physically around his goal.

Hronek has a good game too…to bad he has the tendency to pass to E too often ! Avoid the big guy will ya !

By the way when Vanek shoots ..he scores ! Stop making Strange passes and SHOOT !!

By the way is Lil Bert are new Homer ? boy that way to deflect pucks sure reminds me of Homer…

Great win…a start of many more i hope.

Bert had seemed frustrated lately since nothing was working out. Hopefully this game turns things around a little for them.

I want the team to lose, but it’s good for the players if they win a little here and there.

Vanek must shoot every time he is in the scoring position. Him over passing is so frustrating.
Same with Nyquist. Yesterday was a perfect example of good things happen when these overpassers shoot.

The night before against the Jets IMO, Jets just got lucky on their scoring chances, we did not.

I don’t know if I agree with that, usually when Vanek over passes he has no lane or position to shoot, so instead of eating the puck or cycling it, he’s been tossing the puck around blindly, or trying some cross crease pass that’s got to get through a pair of sticks to work.  I’m glad he scored a few of late, I was starting to consider him a liability, he’s slow and is turnover prone.
