Congrats Luuuuu! He looked so much more poised and calm out there. Great to know he's still a Canuck
Much better effort all around
Nice effort on the goals by Lapierre and Garrison, and a great play on the goal by Sasquatch aka Kassian
The D's played much better today. Less trouble clearing the zone and a fantastic effort defensively on the PK.
Burrows in particular was fantastic.
Ugh, we're going to start calling him Sasquatch? That's pretty terrible
I was also glad to see our D was more on the ball tonight. That being said, this was a Colorado team without one of their top scorers and their main leader. They aren't known to be an offensively explosive team regardless so I think it was an easier match up than usual for our D. I think they'll gain confidence from this though and that's definitely a good thing.
edit: I should mention that despite them not having powerhouse O, Luongo made some really nice saves. Didn't mean to take away from him... but yeah, I think our defensemen had an easier time with Colorado's O vs. Thornton and Marleau heh
