Chad LaRose Will Eat Your Children

Rosie continues to roll through the opposition this season as evident in last night's 3-1 win over Vancouver. If there is one player who stood out among the rest, Chad is the man.

On a night with not a whole lot of quality chances and opportunities, Brind'amour sprung a beautiful cross-ice pass to LaRose on a breakaway that Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo, had no chance to stop. That 3rd period goal was a momentum-breaker for a Vancouver team that had outshot the Canes in said period.

Other notes about last night:

  • Three, THREE! 2nd period fights (Craig Adams fights like your little sister)
  • Jeff Hamilton continues to impress & make GM Jimmy Boy look like a genius
  • Ryan Bayda looked like he was still on the flight from Albany
I'm giving props today to the upper level, particularly sections 321-325. On a Monday night game that showed a fairly sparse crowd, you Caniacs were loud as hell and cheered loud enough to get the lower level off their corporate behinds to do the same. Kudos. You and Chad LaRose should go to the Edwards Mill Bar & Grill and get yourselves some celebratory beverages. Tell the bartender that COI has the tab (if they act like they don't know what you're talking about, just keep ordering drinks...)
