I’m beginning to think I could be at center for the Rangers and they’d still have a chance with Henrik Lundqvist in net. That’s how good the goalie has been of late, never more than so on the “I-have-no-business-stopping-this” kick save on Aaron Ward that staved off a potential second goal for the B’s. Ridiculous save. And it wasn’t the only one.
Jaromir Jagr made up for what was generally a dog of a game—not only by scoring the shootout winner, but also with his forecheck on Zdeno Chara that set up the tying goal. No, Jagr didn’t pass the puck to Pock directly, but his pressure forced the play.
Congratulations to Thomas Pock for his second goal of the season, and of course, for his UMass Minutemen advancing past Clarkson in the NCAA Tournament. Pock and I spend a fair amount of time talking Hockey East hockey seeing how I went to UNH and he went to UMass. That doesn’t make him a bad person. It’s just a good thing he has hockey to fall back on….
Marek Malik played a great game today. I don’t know what you people are talking about…
What, you’ve lost your sense of humor?
