Glad he found a way to get Eaves in. I’m sure the comments following will discuss whether Emmerton should be the one switched out.

By the way, is George feeling any better?

Hmmm… I did notice he didn’t play much down the stretch in game 6. His TOI was 7:52 and he was 33% in the faceoff circle. Interesting

Bugsy, George still is experiencing physical pain, but does tell me he will be around for the game tonight and hopefully a recap.

I agree with this.  Emmerton hasn’t done anything for a while now. And eaves always seem to make an impact when he’s out there.  Go wings!

Good for Patty Eaves - gonna need his speed and tenacity tonight.

I’d have left Emmerton in there and sat Sammy.  The reason his TOI was down in Game 6 was because they didn’t have to kill any penalties.  And I have a feeling they will be killing A LOT of penalties tonight.

I’m resistant to changes that have been helping us win.

That’s why Uncle Mike’s the coach and I’m not.

I’m glad Eaves is in, I think he deserves it, but I don’t get pulling Emmerton out, unless he’s injured.

Thought Emmer has been solid, but Eaves may finish checks better and can fill the PK role as well.

What if Fil could be a threat on every shift?  We’d be such a better team.
