Peca Controlled

from Pierre McGuire of TSN,
One of the things that Oilers head coach Craig MacTavish wanted to improve in Game 3 was line matchups, and getting centre Michael Peca up against Rod Brind'Amour was just what Edmonton needed to get back into this series. Peca was the complete package in Game 3. He skated well, got his physical play going and was able to win faceoffs. Peca's ability to win foot races and get in the his opponent's faces got the already rowdy Rexall Place crowd going throughout the game. He definitely brought his 'A' game in Game 3, and credit goes to MacTavish for changing the matchup and getting Peca up against Brind'Amour.
continued While we are with McGuire, I thought his analysis and information last night was the highlight of the NBC broadcast. When J.D. and he were talking about Laviolette trying to slow up the pace of the game, Pierre responded, "I should know, I am standing right next to him."
