…wow that was an exciting overtime. Loved the back and forth. Oh yeah and Anisimov’s goal helped.
…Anisimov had quietly been struggling on the top line and it was nice to see him break out tonight.
…three out of four solid starts from Biron to start the season. Can’t ask for more out of your backup goalie.
…nice return from Gaborik. His skill level is just so much better than anyone else on the ice.
…saw lots of comments the last two days wondering why Fedotenko was still on the team. Assuming I won’t see those tomorrow.
…third straight game with the refs stealing a goal from the Rangers. Who’s coffee did Torts spit in?
…poor Frolov. The guy has the game winner on his stick and a Buffalo defenseman is able to deflect it out of mid air into Enroth.
…i liked Gilroy’s game tonight. He was tough on the puck and joined the offense when needed. Very noticeable. Should be good for his trade value.
…what? No hat trick against the Sabres again from Stepan. Heck he’s begging for a secondary assist at this point.
…big fan of the lines tonight. Lots of balance.
…loved Torts’ reaction to the game winner. He was fired up. As was I.
…couple of days off then Tom Renney and the Oilers are in town Sunday afternoon.
