Seems to me that, unlike life under the Count, this team doesn’t wilt in the 3rd period on tough road trips or after back-to-back games. Somebody deserves some credit for their improved conditioning or improved motivation, or both. Or, maybe I’m seeing the world through Vanek-coloured glasses.

Well Vanek may not take us to the Promised Land. But getting close enough to gaze across the Jordan would be fine with me.

The ugliness on this site drives me crazy most days, but then a great post like this brings a smile to my face. After all, hockey isn't about firing the coach or how useless a given player is. Hockey is about a kid with stickers on his helmet. Thanks

Anyone know what happened to Bourque last night? It looked like he got clipped with a stick and left the ice for the room, but not before trashing his helmet. I'm not sure he returned, although hard to tell with the shortened bench.

Great win!!! Sure would have loved to have seen St. Louis on the PP though.

It’s Sunday morning in Winnipeg. You walk to the rink with a shovel and your stick and skates. You shovel the ice clean, cuz the warming shack is locked so there’s no scary, chain-smoking shackmeister to do it for you. You don’t really care. It’s chilly putting on your skates outside but it won’t matter once your feet freeze. And then you are off. No girls with their figure skates. No kids learning to skate and falling all over the place, no games of “pum, pum pullaway.” Just you and the cold prairie wind and some buddies skating as fast as you possibly can. Who couldn’t love our 4th line! Get well soon Bournival.

May have been noted already, but Weise broke into the league with Tortorella and the Rangers. May have been a case of "I didn't like you then, and I don't like you now."

May have been noted already, but Weise played for the Rangers under Tortorella. Sounds like a case of "I didn't like you then, and I don't like you now."

Looks like an adequate crash and banger for the 4th line. I see, though, that he has had some injury issues this year (shoulder, leg), which is often the price you pay for robust play.

Despite the continued complaints here about Rene Bourque's play, he was nevertheless named 3rd star of the game. I guess it's hard for folks to give up a good (and easy) thing.
