Well the 3 game road trip through eastern Canada (Sorry Buffalo, but alot of your fans live in Hamilton) and with a 2-0-1 record you would think things in Sutterville would be all rosy. BUT they aren't. The numbers in the 3 games look like this;
Montreal 1-0 win, pp 1-3, pk 3-3, Shots for 31 against 25
Buffalo 2-1 SO loss, pp 0-4, pk 3-4, Shots for 26 against 33
Toronto 5-2 win, pp 1-2, 3-5, Shots for 22 against 40 YES 40
Summary 2-0-1 PP 2-9, PK 9-12 Shots for 79 AGAINST 98
I know Brent was not happy after last nights win versus the Leafs and they left the ACC quickly before the OPP arrived to investigate the 2 point robbery.
As happy that I am the team was successful on the road, I am also concerned that we are reverting back to the old ways of Iggy scores, Kipper saves, How did we do?. I was ery happy at the start of the season, as we all 4 lines going and scoring from everyone.
The team returns home to face Colorado on Tuesday and Chicago on Thursday before hitting the road again. I am pretty sure Brent will have the guys working hard Monday, which will be an up tempo practise. The good thing about winning a few games you shouldn't is that you won those games.
