I’m Happy Now, Right?
Admittedly I’m still struggling with this whole “losing to win” thing.
Being beaten by NJ, a team we actually want to pass us in the standings (right?) is supposed to be a big picture victory.
Funny, it just felt like another embarrassing loss to me.
What can certainly be taken from that game is that Lehner is at least a legit NHL prospect. He looked very good for a 19 yr. old in his second NHL start. Was he “prodigy”, well, no, but he was (in one game) at least as good as any back-up in the league, and as good as many starters.
But it was one game, so I’ll refrain from the “franchise #1” hyperbole. Don’t get me wrong, his play was impressive, and provided a spark in this otherwise light less season.
Greening was as good as could be expected. He landed a couple of hits, one nice one, and wasn’t a liability. Here’s hoping he can get some consistent games (maybe 6-8) to see if he can find a groove.
Ho hum, Sens back on the ice tonight, let’s hope they can keep the loss from exceeding a 3 goal gap.
