Now what the hell about the 10,17,25 line? 10 and 25 were almost invisible last night.
If we can get that line playing at the level of the other three, we have a real shot at this thing (and no, I'm not talking about this series).
I thought 21, 46, and 57 played with that 'edge' that they don't consistently bring night in and night out.....gotta find a way to bring that every night.
57- Still has me confused, he is a different player than we have seen in past seasons. Forget the scoring lets just pester the goalie and bully the other team, I'm saying this is bad he still got the puck deep last night a few times and I don't think he stoped moving his feet all night, but this is a different perron this year being more physical and ect. Him and quick are cracking me up though he has made a good pest these two games.
42- What can I say about the guy, he wont take any shit thats for sure
74- Other than the few times not be able to keep standing this is the oshie we all love. Battled with the puck all night had a good hit or two as well.
9- (Frank) little pick pocket lol he looks great out there, totally got robbed last night what a awesome chance
21- 3 goals in his past 5 games
46- I think polak has really stepped up these past to games, he looks really good out there.
4th line 2nd and 3rd period- Not sure were you were first period but thanks for showing back up in the 2nd and 3rd.
25- WTF you have played great all year why start doing this now
17- mishandled the puck all night long hope you get whatever bullshit is in your system out and start grooving with your line.
PP- We need to find a way to get it in the net or at least keep it in there zone for starters.
Well you didn't notice the 4th line in the first period because we were always playing short handed.
I don't think Stewart is playing awful. I think he's trying hard to remain composed and not take stupid penalties and its affected his physical game. Now he's just got to find the happy medium.
The person who I think is struggling (although I've been drinking at every game) is AMac.
I take back what I said in Feb about Schwarz being an inbetween player. Guy has been great, but I've got this feeling that with Backes out there hitting when he can its opening up space for 9. But to his credit, he's taking advantage of that space.
If you were going to make a change (don't see how you can while up 2-0) I'd sit AMac and Play Tank. But I think Hitch is worried about Tank having his head down in the playoffs and getting smoked and ruining his career with this 2nd concussion in his first year.
