We’re underway. Ya boys got a point on the road, blew a lead, caused way-too-early panic, took too many penalties. In other words, situation normal.
Quick turnaround with a 1 p.m. road game today vs. the future Stanley Cup runnerup Mighty Ducks in Stockholm.
1) Time of possession in the first period: 19:00 to 1:00.
2) Captain Callahan giveth and taketh away. He was pretty fabulous except for the cough-up on the first goal. Then he started firing away and hitting people and scored a ridiculous goal from the below the goal line. (ps, How did that puck go in, Joe? It went in because just about every goalie in the whole league plays on his knees and therefore doesn’t get square on bad-angle shots … and that’s why there are more bad-angle goals now than ever before). Nice debut with the “C.”
3) I thought a bunch of guys played really well, but each one had a “but” like Callahan with the turnover (maybe the awful ice was to blame). Examples to follow:
4) Marian Gabor...
