|Peters, Nr. 1 Star of Game 1 of the Calder Cup Play offs|
At one time Hackett (in 2.) sure tried hard to rile a foe facing him, but that guy was savvy not to fall for it!
crowd small but VERY vocal.
Falk slow, tentative, but worked up to some effective checking later.
Penner fast, carries puck safely, but also makes mistakes that loose him the momentum.
Ortmeyer, a solid and calming (?) presence on ice.
Noreau adding extra speed to his skating.
Spurgeon, I am sure, will get better after he gets used to this coach and system after his sojourn up North.
Gillies - he just whizzes so fast, he is hard to keep up with.
Kassian keeps surprising me, keeps his stick on the puck, has added quickness to his bag of tricks :-)! And kept the peace thus no fighting broke out!
Earl, reliable gritty efforts game after game.
O'Sullivan, DiSalvatore still a good tandem.
Peters blossoming, under pressure, perhaps?
Hackett had some great saves, with mitt, pads and stick,
but was 'underworked :-)with ONLY 18 SOGs to face' that's a lol!
Now I do hope that you guys can keep this momentum going for the next games. Keep the speed, pass well, discombombulate Peoria's defense, pepper their net. AND keep your own defense and offense well oiled!
GAme Two is Friday night, right here,
then both teams travel to Peoria for games 3, 4, 5 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday respectively.
If needed games six and seven back here in Houston.
