The guys on TGOR this morning were really giving a tongue bath to Boucher this morning talking about how the team used to look like a minor league team at times and now they play well ALL THE TIME. It was overboard. I really like Boucher and the staff, but it's not like the team was terrible the past couple years - just not quite good enough. Last night we were outshot 42-28 and it was a great performance by Condon that saved the day.
Anyway, I don't want to get sidetracked here, I just think the previous two coaches get criticized a little too much when they weren't far off from what Boucher is doing here so far.
Good W last night, still feels great this morning.
I'd also like to point out that we did a pretty good job of staying out of the box last night (or taking a Blue Jacket with us when we did get a penalty)...the crazy/flukey 5 on 3 not withstanding. Also, Dubinsky got a 10 minute misconduct at the end of the game. What a dummy.
Agreed on the coaching. Was never a fan of PTFlea's hero, "Mac", but Boucher needs to get this team to a much higher level to earn the lofty praise he's already receiving.
