Welcome to the NHL Erik, finally. A career game for Christensen in the most important one of the season. He just earned a contract for next season. Thank god Torts finally came around to the realization that Jokinen would not mesh with Gaborik cause he likes to shoot too much and that, if given time to gel, Christensen and Gaborik (with Dubie’s grit and skill mixed in) would work. Love that line now. Only flaw for Christensen last night was his ridiculous reaction to getting the wind knocked out of him. Granted it feels like you are going to die, but by this point in your life you have to recognize that it’s passing and not serious, right? Whatever. He was dynamite — and now healthy for tomorrow.
Why does almost no one skate to the far ends of the rink to toss pucks after winning a star? Are they that tired? Spread the wealth.
Oh yeah, and a near perfect game by the Rangers. Even if the Leafs were atrocious. Protect the middle for Christ’s sake.
