Popular Post iceman64 Posted October 13, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted October 13, 2019 (edited) During last night's game in the second period for 2 long stints, I sat there staring in unbelief that, that actually was us playing a stifling tight checking so well it was leading to turn overs and dangerous scoring chances and it wasn't against us. yeah we took our foot off finally at the start of the 3rd but that's another story. If Greener gets the D and team D overall to play like that for 60 mins then it might just be the elite teams being leery of playing us for a change, not the other way around. We're not there yet but seeing we can play like that, and if we can do it, we have enough offensive fire power to win a lot more games than last year and who knows what could happen. Honestly this team looked a lot like 2011 at times last night.. I know, I know, the Flyers aren't elite but a good team. This is still warming up for that soon but hey, you can't argue last night was both positive and negative BUT more positive. JB did right by us by drafting Hughes, trading this offseason.. finally hockey that's not painful to watch most nights but the build is almost over.. Glad it's fun to watch again! The only thing I didn't like was Greener not getting the boys fired up and taking it to the Flyers at 3rd period puck drop and making Markstrom save the day instead of a fire up and keeping quick shorter shifts and rolling the lines keeping fresh legs out there but Markstrom shut the door who bring us back to positive again, he's saving our ass, just like some games last year.. Anyway I digress, just happy seeing long moments of greatness in the 2nd period last night which we need because guys like Ovie Crosby McDavid etc etc will be making stops here and we're going to need to play like that for a full 60 mins, can we do it? Well I guess we're going to find out but part of me is dying to see this team with a healthy Ferland and Roussell Should be fun to watch!
