OK, could someone please tell me just what is going on here? I mean, that was a 3-0 road trip. Two of those games did not include Ilya Kovalchuk. Two of those games were come from behind wins against possible playoff teams. On top of that, it is FIVE wins in a row. SIX wins out of seven games.
Gotta take a break. My head is starting to hurt.
I'm back. How about that Zach Bogosian? Hennngh! How 'bout him? Hennngh! How about the job he did last night...... Huuuuuuhhh! Heeeeeennnnngggghh!! We are watching an 18 year old really come in to his own here the last half of the year folks. I knew he was going to be good, but this is something else. I love seeing him get power play minutes and fire that puck at the net. For all of those folks that wanted to send him back to Juniors after his injury so a year wouldn't count against his contract... well, this is why we didn't do that. Another year in Juniors would have done him no good. And now he can come out of the gate flying next year.
You are seeing a little something about the character of these guys. The season is over. Key guys were traded at the deadline, yet they keep competing and keep winning. I gotta be honest with you, at the start of the year I wasn't sure if these guys had that in them. I was obviously wrong. As I've stated before, I think the biggest part of the turn-around has to do with naming Kovy Captain. The guys in the dressing room have got to know who is leading them. When things got off to such a bad start, nobody knew who to look to. Just look at what has happened since Kovy was given the C. Just sayin.
And for those of you doing your little protest not going to the games because ownership sucks and you want to prove a point... well, just stop it and come watch this team play. How about Friday night against the Wings? That game should be a sellout, and we really don't want the place overrun with Wings fans, ok.
