And love for Torrey! "He's my teammate so we have some chemistry. *happy, special smile*"
Niemi really bailed the team out a lot tonight, especially on the PK. I'd like to see less dependence on him, but the team didn't completely throw him to the wolves. I have to admit I was concerned that this was going to be one of those games where the crappy team is sick and tired of their long losing streak and are energized by their big trade. But the huge first period settled me down.
JMFJ and Donuts combined spectacularly on a goal while they were on the PP today. Unfortunately, it was an Islanders goal (Donuts with the turnover and JMFJ with the helpful screen on his goalie). What an ignominious end to an 11-game point streak: being shut out by the Isles. :P
But good on Al Montoya for getting a shutout in his first NHL start this season! He didn't have too tough of a job as the Isles thoroughly outplayed the Kings, but still, nice for him. :) Also, Matt Moulson scored 2 goals on Quick, who is his brother-in-law (they're married to sisters, Moulson used to be a King). Guess who has bragging rights at family get-togethers? :P
