And just like that, the power play is back and dangerous. Faceoff wins were a big part of that, but we’ll discuss that later.
Val played a great game. I keep hoping this is the new normal for him and not a well-timed hot streak.
Franzen is good at scoring goals.
Hudler must be traded right away won’t be pushed around. Something tells me he learned how to throw a punch during his UFC workouts. If that’s true, who do you hope he’s saving it for? There are no wrong answers, unless you said something other than ‘Kane, Patrick.’
The Wings were out shot, but I didn’t think they left Howard out to dry like the Jackets did to Mason. Howard was able to see all but one shot. He still seems sharp to me.
I didn’t think White would be this good, but I really didn’t think Kindl would be as good as he’s been. There was a play early in the second where the Wings were scrambling and seemed shook up for some reason. Kindl took the puck and casually skated it out of trouble.
Big Rig beat a guy up. I was kind of mad at him at first. Up 3-1, why give the Jackets a chance to grab any momentum? But he used his reach to his advantage. Anyone else think he looks like Sam Winchester from Supernatural? Maybe not.
Datsyuk is still the best player in hockey, but he hasn’t quite been himself yet. In his defense, he hasn’t had to be himself yet. Maybe he’s just saving it for Ovi.
If you play fantasy hockey and you get extra points for shorthanded goals, I suggest making room for Helm. It’s coming.
That’s all I got. Did you see anything epic?
