- Jaromir Jagr also had an assist, and he is 2-2-4 in the past four contests.
...thankfully I didn't watch a second of the game yesterday. From what I've read it looks like another great game by the officials (four power plays to eight!!!!) and for some reason despite Gomez being back from injury Renney hasn't put the lines back together.
...even the most ardent Renney supporter (I'm talking to you fleich14) can't make excuses for Renney switching up the three line combinations that catapulted us to a 13-2-5 run. Does Renney not like scoring? If these lines aren't re-united tonight Renney should be fired on the spot. I can forgive Renney for not having a fiery demeanor, but I can't for tinkering with the line-up when not needed.
...biggest game of the year tonight. I'll have a preview later.
