Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Impressed

New, comments

That was a very good win on Monday. And no, it wasn't perfect... but they didn't have to play a perfect game. Everything was just... good. The team played a good, honest game and got a result they deserved. Scoring chances were 27 to 15 in favor of the guys in gold, and that's indicative of the game they played.

So don't waste this with a crappy performance against Vancouver, please.
