Anyway, Rene Bourque potted two goals, one the game winner in overtime for the 3-2 victory. sandwiched around an Artem Anisimov, no-look-face-the-other-way-to fool-the-goalie-backhand goal. The franchise achievement of a sweep wasn't necessarily accomplished by dominating the other teams, it was more about playing with a lot of will against adversity, as the team experienced plenty of adversity in the three games. I guess what I am saying is that this sweep does not necessarily mean that we have a good team this year or next. But I think that collective strength of will the team showed is something that is reasonably portable, and will help you in a lot of different situations. It is also a prerequisite for being a team that will do some damage in the playoffs, and I think we fancy that this team has that kind of run in its future at some point.
I don't think any major damage was done to our draft position, we are still locked in that 6-7 range now, and that's where we should end up. That should get us some really good players.
