Since Utica did scoring by committee and only had one guy with 20 goals or more (Brandon Defazio) Fox's and Blomstrand's 30+ goals in the ECHL for the Wings will be a much welcomed addition. Not saying that it will translate, but when players know how to score, it certainly helps the team having those options.
Hope this goal gives him a big boost of confidence. He really needed that one too.
Confidence is all he needs....just like Baertschi...once he can gain confidence, his game looks a lot different than when he doesn't. Hopefully Jensen's game gains some steam, with a solid ending to the playoffs could gain some trust and faith him again from the Canuck brass
Travis Green and his players have been successful up to this point in the post season...one bad loss doesn't mean he throws everything that he has done and built this entire season with the players he has out the window.
I trust he knows what guys need to be in the lineup and how to get a response from them...i.e Gaunce in game 5 against the Wolves.
Like Swift said, too many people just want McCann and Virtanen in the lineup to gratify their own wants and needs rather than thinking of the well being of the team.
I remember that the biggest complaint for the Canes was that they lacked size and a player that can physically dominate the game.
The Canes love two way players that can play all situations and would love to add more size on the wings considering they are a smallish team as they ice Skinner, Gerbe...they will want to look to a guy like Lawson Crouse
