I still think the rest of the defensive corps is shaky (see: PC's 2-on-0) and the PP needs work, but the forwards looked GOOD tonight. Lit the lamp 7 times even though only 6 were goals and only 5 counted. Crisp, clean passes. Strong on the puck, getting it in deep, making things happen.
I LOVE seeing Almeida and Atkinson on the same line. They did that against Maine and burned them all weekend. Hope to see them stay together the rest of the year, don't care who the 3rd guy is.
Whitney had his best game in a while. One play that really stands out in my memory - Whitney was in the corner, Providence was skating the puck out of their defensive zone, and Whit chased him down and knocked the puck off his stick and hummed it back in deep. Good strong play. He's playing with a fire that wasn't there before.
And how can you not love Kucharski? What a story, the guy's a beast. Does my neighbors in Saugus proud and makes up for the fact that that hack Lawrence is from there.
We'll see what happens tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the trip.
