This is insane.

That is an unbelievable stat.


Didn't we win all of 6 games all of last year when trailing going into the 3rd?

Get used to this folks, when you have an elite goalie and two of the top 5 players in the NHL on your team never be surprised with comebacks in the 3rd.

Now tonight is thr norm, battling back from 1 goal down as opposed to Tuesday when it was 3 but I will not be surprised to see more of these games.

Now if we can only manage to KEEP leads :D

Bad first half = Blame Therrien.

Good second half = Yay Players!

Right?

Ok, but where can I blame Mike Yeo for all of this? Isn't that mandatory?

He only gets blamed when the powerplay fails to generate shots, fails to score on a 5 on 3, and/or gives up SHGs. All other shortcomings are usually traced to Therrien, though the current whipping boy (Eaton for now) is sprinkled in at times just to keep things fresh. Somehow, Andre Savard escapes criticism.

I'm so confused. I'm trying to complain like we usually do after games, but I just can't get the sequence right.

See, it's not as easy as it looks, is it? :D

You're new to this. If you want to get it down, you're going to have to be willing to work through the rough patches early on.

So let me get this straight.

In the 6 wins our third line Cooke - Staal Kennedy got 11 goals, I think all at even strenght... Talk about a key stat for the winstreak.

No secondary scoring here...

Cooke has been absolutely fantastic. He leads the league in hits, right?

The third line has been fantastic, and with Staal returning to form this team is SO dangerous.

cooke is a beast. i wasnt impressed at first, but he clearly has learned his role on this team and is excelling in it.

its funny how now that we are putting pucks in the net on a consistent basis, the mob isnt calling for RS to trade for a winger.
