It started with goaltender Jake Allen, who put an exclamation point on a 29-save performance by going mano a mano with Brady Tkachuk in the dying moment of the game and plucking the shot out of midair.
On a day when Carey Price made his long-awaited return to practice with his teammates, Allen sent a message there is no reason for Price to rush his comeback.
“The stops Jake made early in the game were huge, he kept us in the game,” Josh Anderson said.
“I know watching from the stands the last game he played was phenomenal,” Anderson added. “Coming in tonight, he made some huge starts right off the bat. We have a lot of confidence in our team right now. I love how we go into every game expecting to win. It’s a good mindset from everyone.”
