Interesting as hell to watch the Wild on Dallas TV last night
EVERY Dubnyk apologist needed to hear what they were saying.
They NAILED him.
* makes some terrific stops
* wow he covers the net
* looks athletic even tho he's huge
* just keep throwing it at him boys, he'll let in a stinker
* all you have to do is let him handle the puck and he'll give you opps
* seriously boys …. throw it at him, he'll help you out at the worst times
Honestly, we played like we were protecting a lead in Game 7 of the Cup finals
We panicked anytime a puck started to go near Dubnyk, and that's what preserved the win.
We can be hard to play against when everyone buys in
Zuccarello is pretty damn good
Dallas misses him, they were nothing but impressed with him at the end of last year
Dumba looked really sharp, just hope he doesn't fall thru the ice after he makes his 15th straight spin circle get away. They're gonna catch on to that move, kid.
Not much offense, but we have chosen that path.
Greenway came alive last night, Foligno does that to linemates
I caught just a part of the game last night, but I really like that big line with Foligno, Greenway, and Ek. Once they got the puck down deep they were in the zone until they got tired and Dallas had no answer.
Kind of takes you back to the old Maruk, Plett and McKegny line with the North Stars. Throw the puck behind the net and then just pound them into submission.
Old Time Hockey! If you have big guys, dump and chase is a good game plan. I'm so jacked about Hockey kicking off soon!
