MOST people thought Arsene Wenger was mad when he said his young Guns could win the title. We’re in a good run but have to keep going as this was just one game. It’s just the beginning. It’s an important game for our confidence, especially after being with our national teams. We lack a little bit physically after 10 days away. We have to play more as a team like we’re doing now. We’re playing more collectively, more as a team and this is important.” Spurs had plenty of chances but confidence is down and on another day Dimitar Berbatov, Robbie Keane and Bent would have had a hatful.
DETROIT – The Detroit Red Brunner is getting his second wind. It helps to regain some confidence. That’s what Brunner did Monday, scoring what proved to be the deciding goal a 3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche at Arena. It snapped his 15-game goal-scoring drought. The Red ‘t have a surplus of offensive options, they desperately need Brunner to display the scoring touch he showed the first 19, when he notched a team-high 10 goals. I thought the last couple of, I started to get the feeling back,” Brunner said. I was skating better, I had my legs underneath me, I was gaining a lot of confidence and getting a lot of scoring chances. I knew when I was getting the scoring chances that they were going to go sometime.” Brunner blasted a one-timer at 9 of the second period on a nice Jonas Jerebko Jersey set-up by Gustav Nyquist. It gave his team a 3 lead, following goals by Abdelkader and Cleary. The Red ran out of a steam the third, as Colorado got a power-play goal by McGinn at 5 and a goal from Matt Duchene with 1 remaining after pulling goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere for the extra skater. But, Jimmy made a game-saving glove save on PA Parenteau with seven seconds remaining, and Detroit rebounded from Sunday’s disastrous 7 loss at home to Chicago. Brunner tied Pavel Datsyuk for the team lead with 11 goals by scoring for the first time since Feb. 24 vs. Vancouver, when the first-year right wing recorded his lone career two-goal game. The last five were better, but the 10 before, I really felt the heavy legs and was tired. I have to admit that,” Brunner said. You’ve got to prepare yourself mentally to play tough every night. You’ve got to fight through it to bounce back. I I can take a positive from today.” Brunner has played 68, including 33 Switzerland.
He hadn’t played more than 56 a season, and that was with much less travel and not as condensed a schedule as he is experiencing now. It’s the first time I’ve had that that days,” Brunner said. I definitely felt it a little bit, but the last trip out West, it was more like getting the energy back. Getting out the a little bit, getting that good feeling. All the boys were happy, we had a great road trip. I kind of felt much better.” The Red Brunner can get on another roll. It was good for him, real relief for a goal-scorer,” coach Babcock said. Like most goal-scorers, he’s probably streaky. When you get ‘er going you feel it. Next thing you know you’re shooting the puck more.” Johan Franzen, who had two assists, said: It’s tough when you ‘t score when you’re a goal- scorer. He found a great spot and made a great pass, and he doesn’t from there. He’s got a great shot.” Nyquist had to navigate a broken stick on the ice to set up Brunner. Starting goalie Semyon Varlamov was pulled after that goal. I just came up from laying down with a battle with a D-,” Nyquist said. I saw the puck come loose and went to get it. One of their guys made a move on me and then I saw Bruns was open back where he found a good spot. Just had to feed him the puck and he’ll make sure to put it the back of the net. The Red came dangerously close to squandering the lead the waning seconds, before robbed Parenteau. I was trying to take everything away,” said. He was at a bad, and if that goes, it’s completely on me. … As a goalie, you’re supposed to make that save 99 times out of 100.”.
