This board moves on to a 5-1 record if we win here.
Salvador will be around 26 minutes tonight, team high, around 10 min. more than Larsson. We see the overplay of him getting corrected.
Parise first, Kovy second and Salvador third. Perfect choices, I think.
Jim, I think you missed their best game of the season. But it was for an awesome reason, of course.

Yeah, Salvador was excellent tonight. He really stepped up in Tallinder's absence.
They definitely play an interesting "style" of hockey. Best offensive game of the season. Defensive play was pretty much the same.
I mean, Sal had a good game in that he directly kept two pucks out of the net, but at the same time you add the big saves and the numerous times that Dallas just outright missed, it's kinda frightening.
My favorite was the second goal (I think), when four players had a ritual dance around one post, while the Dallas player scored being at the other post.
You almost wonder if they would be better off playing Julienball or some kind of passive trap and just poaching. They have so many forwards capable of this. Or maybe their play down low would still be awful.... who knows
and that PK... they are now EVEN on the season 4 on 5. nuts. -1 overall.
