    Perron goes balls to the walls every shift. I love it. And yes, the Blues look legit.

    Their winning percentage at home is up a bit from last year. :D A lot more fun to watch and the goaltending seems better. :D :2thumbsup:

    REALLY nice to see him coming into his own. I like the fact that backes and others finish every shift they have and work together.
    That along with Halek keeping things tight on every night and we may have a real contender this year.
    Halek has flat stoned marleau a couple of times tonight... wow
     
  5. I am afraid to watch it and jinx them :D

    The netminding isnt just better, its 200% better. LOL
    I know what you mean though Joe... its nice to have someone like halek in the pipes. Been quite a while since we have had some consistency there.
    Lets hope (and I shutter to say this) that he dont get injured. :eek:

    Did you feel sorry for Backes? I don't know if I've ever seen a more open net missed at point blank range. I'm glad that didn't come back to hurt us.

    Halak looked great tonight. I haven't got to see too much Blue's hockey this year, but he has looked great from what I've seen and of course the proof is in the pudding.

    It seems like we already have more home wins than we did all last season. :eek: :D

    Halak's the real deal


    What should concern everyone is the fact we went 0-7 on the powerplay and gave up about 6 breakaways or 2x1's while on the powerplay.

    BTW, I thought Thorton's hit was good :shrug:

    I'm gettin excited and its still early!! So far it does look legit because they have been consistent and playing hard, not just going through the motions. Didn't like the powerplay though, something to work on :cheers:

    7 Wins in a row!!!! What a great game. Steen played hard and got a really nice goal plus an empty netter.
