Live in the now dammit!
Yep. Really cool to see another cup.
I'm getting chubbed up just lookin at these lines & powerplay units.
Didn't watch the match vs the Bruins, but from what I'm reading things were bad right out the gate for Murray. Allowed 2 goals in the first 2 minutes??? Heard Sully put Jarry in net, only to return Murray back on the ice... Seeing videos on social media of the crowd in an absolute uproar over it. And some of the players weren't too happy about the home crowd.
Also saw the vids of the scores on Murray. Hard to fault the man for being left on an island against odd-man rushes & shots at point-blank range. The entire defense needs to be better than that.
Amazed they were able to stick it out and win 4-3.
He bounced back from a shaky start. But honestly his play this season caused the fans to turn on him, what is interesting though lately Jarry was shaky so no sure that would have been a good replacement.
WBS Weekly: Bellerive shines as AHL heads to All-Star break
Nice to see Bellerive having a good few games. Lets hope this continues and eventually makes his way to Pittsburgh.
Murray's 3rd period stats have been lights out lately. But that has a lot to do with the defensive flow in general. Penguins are notorious for having a slow start on defense.
But in Murray's last five 3rd periods:
Stopped 20/21 vNSH
Stopped 9/9 @MTL
Stopped 14/15 @COL
Stopped 10/10 @DET
Stopped 14/14 vBOS
2 goals allowed on 69 shots in the 3rd period... And the team has won ALL 5 of those matches.
Sully's decision to stick with him after the 1st vBOS was obviously a great choice. Jeers to all those fans that were bronx-cheering Murray in the 1st... SMH! Give the man a chance. Hell it was Jack Johnson's dumbass that 5-holed him. I think JJ had a bet on Boston in that game.
Is there anything worse than being shut out by the damn Flyers????
Games like these happen every so often, but that was easily the worst of the season so far. Or is it a pattern? Seems like they always sleep-walk their last game heading into the break.
