To get into the playoffs, to stay within distance of the playoffs, they're going to have to pile victories together post-All-Star break. No better way to begin a streak like that this week, on the Fathers' Trip, and go into a lengthy break on a positive note.
They made a positive step Thursday defeating Montreal 4-3 in overtime.
"We smell it, we're right there, and we're going to keep pushing until the end," Fabbri said. "In order to keep it close we have to get on a run and we got a good start here. But no one is satisfied in here and we have a long way to go."...
Goaltender Ville Husso preserved the victory, with several huge saves, including stopping Rem Pitlick on a breakaway in overtime, and Mike Matheson off a rush with 0.01 seconds left in regulation time....
"Awesome, that was a goalie win," coach Derek Lalonde said. "He didn't love all three of those goals (allowed) but it was us as a team not giving up a ton of offense but giving up easy offense. Then, those (saves) in the end of the period and overtime were game savers."
Husso didn't have a favorite save, but was simply excited about the victory.
"They're all timing saves," said Husso of his late-game stops. "Tie game, it's trying to keep the focus on the next shot and go from there."
These quotes are only driving me further away from this team. You had to scratch and claw to beat a tanking team and it’s actually worse that you got two points. Get on the jet.
