I would have made Darling one of the 3 stars. That's just me, tho.

Quality win. We usually lose SOs.



I agree. Thinking Williams got the 3rd star simply as a "welcome back" after having a solid game at both ends. Darling is absolutely the starting goalie after that performance though. Guy played out of his mind. We just can't give teams such good looks. I do not fault Darling on any of the goals tonight.

Dumba initiated a rugby scrum and got away with it.



Because he did such a subtle move and because Faulk ended up stuck behind Darling before anybody. Had that not occurred, I think they would have given the call to us. Faulk has to not do that to begin with. Darling was reaching his posts all night. But it is what it is. Hopefully that situation gets worked on because we can't have those kinds of issues all season late in games when we have a 1 goal lead.



The crowd was great to see tonight. Seemed like a packed house and everybody was into it. We need that all season. You could tell the players were feeling the energy in the third period when everybody started picking their game up. We can't have this crowd on opening night and only when we are winning. The fairweather fans need to weed themselves out and we need to start getting people watching hockey. I seriously want to just start making threads in the main forum...lol

Officially a sellout last night. 18,680.

As for the non-call of interference...had we been Toronto or Montreal you can bet your arse that we'd have gotten the call.

Definitely some empty seats there (predominantly center ice lowers) but the crowd was into it in the third. Real quiet during the first and second but once the boys were flying around in the 3rd it got pretty loud.
