Finally Get My Super Duper Top Line Pairing!!!!!!

What a great start to the 2nd half!!!!!!!! The team came out skating hard with a fire we haven't seen in some time. Coach Trotz finally went with a oldie but a goodie top line of Dumont/Arnott/Sullivan which I have been begging to see. The result? 2 goals and some other very good chances. There is still a large mountain to climb but this is something to build from, especially rallying from a 3-1 deficit on the road. Other nuggets from the game of note:

J.P. Dumont- skating hard and scores goal, probably finding comfort playing with Arnott again
Steve Sullivan- looking better each time out but still shying away from contact situations
Power play- 3 goals on 8 tries, lets hope that continues
Ryan Jones- gritty play made Legwand/Erat/Jones line a solid second unit
Martin Erat- if he plays with that passion each night a playoff return very possible
Pekka Rinne- 3 goals for Canucks were crap and he made HUGE saves to keep them at 3
Joel Ward & Jordan Tootoo- drew 3 penalties aggravating and doing the dirty work

Bonk, Arnott, Legwand contributed strong games as well. Off to Calgary, we owe them.
