I know Craw needs a rest, but don't EVER 'F' with a winning streak!!! Ride Craw until he loses one. It's not like we have any room for error here. You can't start sitting him to save him for the playoffs - two bad games in a row and we're right back to being on the outside looking in. Ride the winning streak for as long as possible and try to gain some separation from the rest.

Jeff, i didn't notice that about Crawford until you brought it up - good observation. and let's not forget, Turks is a little bit better than average himself. it seems to me we've really tightened up the area around our crease defensively, (Please don't bring up Tanguays and Iginla's goal - they were aberrations), during this win streak. I played a lot more basketball than hockey but always hated it when my man scored on me. defense wins games - so does the drug that is # 19. I loved it when he checked the glass after his second tally - so JT. "You got a problem with 7?"
Rich, thanks for the kind words - as always. Crawford looked beat to hell in the third period. He's played nine straight games and is going to need a break at some point. It'll be interesting to see when Q decides that is going to happen. Do you rest the guy who just keeps winning for you? Or do you throw Turco in net for a night to save Crow for the stretch run? We'll see, I guess....
jeff, Great box! I really liked the scooby Doo box when the Flamers madeit 4-3. You could definitely here the U.C. crowd exclaim, "Rut Row." Your box on Johnson was absolutely perfect. I texted a friend and said Seabs looked like an air craft carrier. I think what I like most about the Boxing is you say in 100 words what I try to say in 1,600. Worried about the Rest Area box though.
