Once again credit Nashville for not making anything easy, but their suffocating style still couldn't stop Vancouver from taking two in their barn and heading home with a commanding 3-1 lead. Of course we know having "commanding leads" is a tad misleading, so expect nothing short of a small war on Saturday.
Some cogent conclusions:
- There's a reason we call him the KesLORD and when he's splitting your D for the GWG that's your first hint. That fact SOB was one of the aforementioned D men is just icing on the cake of life. Kesler has now creeped into the top five for assists (8) and is tied for third overall in points (11). Dude of the hour, man of the game, player of the series?
- At this rate, Joel Ward will be the type of player most teams should want in at least a bottom six role. I'm damn near rooting for the guy.
Next game is back at the Cell on Saturday at 5:00 PM. Time to drive the final nail into the kitty coffin.
