So many good things from tonight's game. Let's review.......
1. Strong performance against a good team- play most of the night stayed in the Pittsburgh zone and two Penguin goals bounced over Preds. Easily could have won game 4-1.
2. Overcoming adversity- rallying from 3 goal deficit could be a springboard
3. Puzzle solved- we have been looking for a line mate to jump start Legwand/Erat and Arnott was the answer. Let's see if it continues.
4. Rinne is the man- huge save after huge save, he is the #1 goalie until he proves otherwise
Kudos to Legwand/Erat.....
After much criticism and mounting pressure to get going, they both tally a goal and were very active. More so than anything else, the passion they played with and displayed after each goal was very encouraging.
Sullivan return scheduled for tomorrow, what line does he play with? A lot of momentum from tonight, tough decisions for coach Trotz. Good problem to have.
