Buffalo dumped a game on a flatfooted performance, proving you still have to show up to win playoff games.
The Icelanders did the right thing in resppnse for game 3 by coming out and swatting the puck like maniacs. Watching their goalie get zinged in the head was priceless. But when you are on the attack that much in the first period and dont score, that's going to come back and haunt you.
DiPietro while not the most amazing goalie out there is definitely a huge morale booster for this team. The Isles played better (Although Yashin looked like crap) last night even in their loss. That late third period 2 man down penalty didnt help matters.
