In response to mattbs' comment:
Very good observation NAS. Don't we all wish they would bury more of their chances? Based on past experiences 2-0 is not a guaranteed win so the more the better. A couple blow outs to get everyone involved in the scoring would be nice. Still an overall better performance by everyone.
2-0 is no guaranteed win, unless the time clock expires! And it did.
I wish every shot they took went in, but that's not too reasonable. Markstrom played well.
Everyone spends so much time living in the future here. It's maddening. "Yes, they won, but if they scored a lot more, they will probably score a lot more next game." You know, like the time they beat Tampa 8-1 and then lost 3-2 in OT to Toronto? Or maybe like the time they beat Pittsburgh 7-4 and then got shut out the following game? Are you thinking of the time they beat Montreal 8-6 then could only muster one goal vs. Detroit?
I know, it was the 8-0 drubbing of Toronto and then the 2-1 loss to SJ, right?
There are also plenty of examples of the team scoring a lot of goals and scoring a lot of goals the following game.
Do you know what this all means? NOTHING.
They won today. I don't care if it was 1-0 or 12-11. W is a W is a W is a W.
