As Butch said to Sundance: Who are those guys?

This time, it was the Ottawa Senators who must have been saying that after an unknown line of “who's he” guys did them in.

Mike Angelidis? Mike Blunden? Jonathan Marchessault?

Who are those guys? For a night, they were the new Triplets. It was as if they started the night as a Tribute band and wound up playing the real stuff.

Angelidis scored his first goal of the year in his second game. Blunden had his first assist in his seventh game. Marchessault, the crafty old vet, scored his fourth assist in his 17th game. This is the stuff that minor leaguers imagine all the the time. That they'll get called up. They'll get time. They made an impact.

You can just imagine the next opponent's scouting line: This line, you do not stop. You can only hope to contain it.

Yeah, there was some well-known firepower for the Bolts, too.
