...that's one of those loses I can't find too much wrong with what the team did. Lots of offense, good forecheck, plenty of energy, but they just couldn't get it done. A hot Cam Ward didn't help.
...pk has been covering up for a lot of penalties and tonight it caught up with them.
...Callahan's goal scoring (three straight games with a goal) is finally catching up with his hard work.
...got to feel for Hank tonight. Guy was standing on his head and has nothing to show for it.
...nice to see Staal adding a little scoring to his game lately, but it seems that it's coming at the expense of his defense.
...Dubinsky continues his hot start with a sweet goal giving him nine points in nine games (5g, 4a).
...too bad that kid Skinner didn't drop to the Rangers in this year's draft, huh.
...man don't know why I didn't notice how big Grachev was during the preseason, but he's huge. One nice shift when he had a nice hit, went to the net and deflected the puck. Other than that pretty invisible.
...glad Torts wanted to get White more involved. Too bad he only gave him seven minutes.
...only one point for Christensen, four less than he expected when the game started.
...right back at it again in Toronto tomorrow night. Biron?
