It was a herculean effort by the team, especially Iles who was outstanding. Never seen a goalie as quick as he is. Had to laugh at Interview guy Al saying it was a "convincing win". It was a backs to the wall win. Outshot 43-22 on home ice, and a lot of those 43 were quality close up efforts. Iles made at least three breathtaking saves in the third. We played two line hockey in the third. Can't recall seeing any of the five Brits in the third, and don't recall seeing Smith or Cochrane at any time last night. Wonder how long they'll put up with warming the bench. Worrying in the interview the the coach stated there is no need for an out and out tough guy.
Yeah, I'm loving the result but it was a backs to the wall win that on another night could have seen us lose a bag of goals. Iles was just superb getting behind everything that Blaze could throw at him, couple of the saves I've no idea how he did it. With players out this was a great result for us, but we all know that getting out shot 2 to 1 can't happen every night thats only going to end up bad.
