First, 2 points and no major injuries is always the goal vs. Merrihack.
As angrydick said, down 3-0 sort of chalked it up to not their night, slow bounceback from a big weekend, etc. It wasn't even like we were being outplayed that badly, our shots were just finding pads and theirs the back of the net. Jerry called a timeout at 2-0, from there we outscored them 4-1. No one's better at perfect timeouts and having the team respond. Nasty toe drag for Whitney on the first goal.
Something to watch, Destry Straight sat this one out with an ankle injury, of course no word ever crept out of the Vatican. York called it a "high ankle sprain, could be 2 weeks could be 6". It did expose that this team doesn't have much depth up front.
922 wins for Coach Champion
Edit: you can see what the threat of Gaudreau does to opposing teams once hockey east posts the video, pretty standard 2 on 2 and he attracts both dmen allowing whitney to drill one in off the bar
