I would like to fully disclose my long time disliking of Nik Antropov. I don't dislike him personally, just his performance on the ice. Back in September I summarized my feelings in "Nik Antropov: The Bane of My Existence". With Hoglund gone, he became my new whipping boy.
Dagnabbit, the kid's allllllllright. He scored a huge goal the other day against Ottawa and last night he scored the winner early in the third period. These are crucial games and Antropov is helping lead the way. Could it be I've been wrong about this guy? Could it be he's totally unworthy of this whipping boy status I've placed on his fragile shoulders?
We're one point out of 8th with a game in hand on the Hurricanes. It's gonna be close.
