I forgot it was a 2 pm game.. DOH! I went for a 2 hour walk along a bunch of snowmobile trails through the woods with the nice weather and spaced out the early game as it turns out did a lot of people who were at the men's game who would have normally listened. A win is a win at this point in the season, but the 1 for 8 powerplay is NOT a good thing.
Interesting to read the lines that Shannon Miller came up with with Rasmussen out...
First line of Tuominen centering Blais and Friddy, which drops Winberg to the third line with Olson and Mattila. I like Blais and Friddy on the same line with a good play-making center who likes to go get the puck in the corners. They usually only were on the ice together(all 3 of the) as the second powerplay previously.
Irwin's line with O'Toole and Holmlov paid off big with O'Toole and Irwin each scoring and assisting on the others goal.
