I actually turned the TV off in the middle of the game because I was just utterly disgusted with how we wern't showing effort. Contrary to popular belief (And my infamous reputation to such), I was not typing up another of my fine "Fire Hitchcock" masterpieces. I don't understand his rationale with changing the lines up, but it's absolutely not his fault if the team plays like they don't want to be there. And that's how they looked for a good chunk of the game.
Then they caught fire. Bergy obviously saw the writing on the wall and doesn't want to be traded.
After all is said and done, winning this game really proved something great, because it shows we have heart. Ott was amazing and Miller showed up to play and made some really great saves. All I ask is that Hitch leaves the lines alone and starts leveraging them for power because we got a lineup now that can be highly effective and dangerous against the opposition, with a bona fide starter now between the pipes.
Anyone that complained about Paaj before has nothing to complain about anymore. He's coming along and coming quick.
As for the continued talk about the trade, I have to ask: Who is this Chris we're talking about? lol.
Long Live The Note!
Don't think it was lack of heart. Everybody looked confused and they looked like shit cause no one knew their place, whether on O or on D. It's not like they weren't skating, they just weren't sure who was supposed to do what, and that can be debilitating. You could just see the sparks fly when the old lines got back together.
