So I had a whole game post here….and I somehow lost it. Don’t know what happened…..

Not happy right now.

What did I like about the game? A bunch – three shorthanded goals – two on the same penalty kill. Lots of breakaways, a great Bergenheim goal, Witt’s second of the season and a hard working Comeau empty net goal. For a while I was calling our penalty kills the Power Kill….to recap Park scored shorthanded, Sillinger twice – almost thrice!

I had a bad feeling when the Canes made it 4-3, but Dubie played very solid and the team managed to pull out a win – eventually getting an insurance goal and then the empty net goal. The Islanders really capitalized on all of the chances tonight, I think they had like 4 breakaway goals tonight – this team rarely gets one let alone 4 in a single game. Penalties continue to be a problem, however the penalty kill was effective (you could say that…) at killing off most, only allowing one power play goal against.

This was a really important night, the Devils and Rangers both won – so we continue to hold a two point lead on the Rangers.

The team must have taken what they learned yesterday afternoon and grown from it – because they certainly never gave up tonight. It was good to see that they stuck to their guns and kept the pressure on.

Great game boys! Keep the ball rolling into Boston and take those to points too!
