How do you explain this team? An 8 game winning streak on the road and 11 games in a row with at least one point. Tonight was not a pretty win but a win is a win. I am trying to figure out what the difference is in style of play or what. The only constants are that the Power Play stinks and Nabby is standing on his head. The only reasons given are usually the players are trying to make the "pretty" play at home while on the road they keep it simple. Whatever it is, I can't explain it.
Tomorrow night would seem like an ideal spot to give Nabby a break and start Patzold. But, can you really sit Nabby after a shutout? I really don't expect that to happen as Ron Wilson always seems to keep his lineup intact after a victory.
