Man it was great to be back in the barn... errr.... The Brandt. I was impressed that the place didn't have the normal after Agribition aroma, but it did creep in here and there but was not overwhelming. Well back to the task at hand.
I decided not to live blog, I want to get back into the swing of things and will live blog in the near future (maybe as soon as tomorrow).... We'll see.
I really don't have much to say about the game, but I do have a few things to say.....
The boys have to shoot more.... I thought that they took too many pass attempts (being to fancy? I don't know) when they had opportunities to shoot. Rieder did just that and scored a goal by shooting.... by no means a fancy goal.
I'm not sure of the reasoning behind having Peel-Burroughs together as a tandem. I do like both of the boys on defence but I'm just not sure that they are a good enough pair to play a regular shift yet. There are times that they look like aged vets but at times they look like total rooks (which they are) Putting them each with a veteran d partner would make sense.... but I'm not the coach. I do think that both are going to be great players (maybe as soon as next year).
What's up with Blidstrand? Not dressed again.... Healthy scratch?
I honestly think that the Pats worked hard tonight but the Giants worked just as hard (if not a bit harder) and when a team has the size and skill that the Giants have it was just a matter of time before they took over. The Giants pursuit of the puck carrier is almost scary at times. Gotta give Vancouver props..... they are a good squad.
Matt Hewitt tried his best to keep the Pats in the game although only facing 24 shots he made some big saves.
Speaking of shooting more..... the Pats need to shoot more (rinse, lather, repeat). With that being said it appears that the players are snake-bitten around the net..... Well that's all I got for now.
Thanks for reading. I really hope that they get a good crowd for Teddy Bear Toss night tomorrow night against the Rebels.
Remember people the Pats slogan "Stand With Us"..... so let's "Stand With Them"
GO PATS GO!!
