What a mouthful for a post title!

Why am I posting this over 24 hours after the game? I spent pretty much all day working on moving the site over to WordPress today. I did a bunch of coding, then started moving all the content over to the database – which isn't an easy task because this site is text driven….. (HUH?). No worries, that's it for the tech talk.

Once again, the Isles let Boston get the early lead – but they managed to withstand any further pressure and power plays against. The Isles power play looked better, but they were still having a problem with puck movement and getting shots through. I started to lose track of how many shin pads they hit.

Simon missed an open net on the rebound, Hunter and Sillinger had a few chances in front of the net as well. Comrie looked better, but once again he made one too many moves. Campoli was hitting like a smaller version of Sutton – catching one of the B's with their head down for a HUGE hit.

Bergeron was back in the lineup and looked pretty good defensively tonight, although when he was on the PP he kept shooting the puck wide (looking for a deflection I suppose), so I wonder if they worked on that during practice. Berard and Bergeron on the same power play made me question that logic….

Mario (my friend’s father who sits two seats to the right of me) brought me a Canon Zoom Lens to try out. I took a bunch of pics last night – but being side tracked today did not post them. However, I did get the game winner by Park – so that will be up right after work tomorrow.

Lastly, DiPietro looked great last night – although there was some concern for him when he got nailed behind the net. Seemed a bit wobbly.

Tomorrow's Game: Dallas

Dallas is coming off a win over the Rangers which makes 5 straight. Hopefully we can knock a streaking Western Conference team off their game and get an important 2 points.
