Even up now.
And if Pisani and Peca cash in its not even close.
Unbelieveable game by the Oil. Unlike game 1 Roloson not really called upon to do a lot. MacT managed a nice game, rolling four lines, having Dvo on the 4th gave them that safety valve, Winchester did a nice job, obviously, but even besides the goal ... well done.
Pisani, Peca and Torres did a really nice job - Peca especially noticeable in both zones. Torres set a nice tone early and overall had a terrific game I thought.
Stoll is a warrior.
Hemsky really needs to get engaged out there - until that shotblock he really did very little - just was soft. If they could get more out of him things could get a whole lot better.
Pronger and Smith were fantastic - two minutes or so left Smith went into the corner off the draw with two Wings and came out with the puck. Pronger - plus four, another goal, beautiful pinch on Winchester's goal.
Staios and Spacek did fine - a mistake or two but overall they did well, no soft touches at any time facing the Wings. Tarnstrom and Bergeron also did quite well. Bergeron coming back on the Zetterberg chance, Tarnstrom playing nice and simple.
Rolo - skate against the post, eh? But they picked him up. It was a fluke sure but still a softie.
Back to Edmonton - a nice win but another in game three might began to plant those seeds of doubt in the Wings' heads.
Now for a celebratory pint.
