well, I was at the game yesterday. The first period was just horrible. Baby Pens defense was non-existent. The actually played much better defense in the 2nd & 3rd.
Regardless of how many goals went in, Curry was a beast. He had one goal that looked a little soff, that was "The Answer's" goal. The rest were all defensive breakdowns. He made some unreal saves though.
As for the rest of the players...They would be lost without Goligoski. It seemed like he was always on the ice and always the leader on the ice. He runs the powerplay and carries the puck up ice all of the time. I think he is going to fit in well next year with the big boys. I think he had 1g and 2 assists. The goal was on a 4v2 wrist shot and then he fed Stone's wrist shot from the point and he made a fantastic pass to Mclean I think it was for another goal.
Other player observations - Filewich just seems uninterested. He had some chances and just never took advantage of them. Stone looked decent, but nothing crazy special. His goal was just on a screen and poorly played by the Wolves goalie. Nathan Smith I barely saw do anything, same with James.
It really seemed like Pens vs Red Wings game 1 where the Wolves just always seemed in the control.
I took a bunch of pics and will post them in the next day or two.
I only wish I got a picture of the lady Wolves fan with a Kwiatkowski jersey on...who the Wolves fans also call "The Stash"
If it goes to a game 7 I got a line for tickets as well...so i'm hoping for a long series and a baby pens win in Chi-town
edit - Oh and, Derrek Engelland is one big dude. Looks like a monster on the ice.
