Hard played game.  Anti "horse shoes" Niemi, played way over his head and probably his best game in 3 years.  It happens.


Thought Megna, LaBate and Chaput looked strong and fast tonight. They pressured well and created chances.  Certainly were not a weak point tonight.


Edler...WD need to realize that he is not the offensive juggernaut he believes him to be.  The guy has a hand-eye coordination problem and he only scores on the 1 in 20 shots that get through because the goalie is totally not expecting the shot.  Stecher is a far better puck mover/shooter.  I would like to see Hutton out with Stecher in a situation like that where you need to take risk to tie it up.  They can both move the puck by skating it and/or passing while Edler basically just hangs no and then shoots it at the pads. 

Can't blame Miller but as noted above, Niemi was better.

LInesman...Pure Suckage.

2-1 loss. Close game. Really not a huge loss. The team was in it, just weren't deployed as effectively as possible. This one is one Willie and the Refs. Sounds like a $&!#ty band from the 80's. 

or an Elton John tune ...B,B,B,Bettman and the Refs.

Lots of compete out there tonight—The young guys came to play and didn't disappoint. I think Chaput has got to have sealed himself a permanent spot for now at least—he's got lots of upside, plus he can win faceoffs, something we've been sadly missing since the departure of Manny.
