Manny & DiPietro were the stars of the show tonight...it was much more fun listening to those guys at ice level than the commentators in the booth. Manny definitely came to play, while Osgood did not, as noted above.
I echo sentiments above that the 3-on-3 wasn't an ideal format. It scarcely resembled a hockey game...more like "fun time" at the end of a practice. Everyone was coasting. We saw offense, to be sure...but we didn't see much of what these young men really bring to the table vis a vis their all-around games.
And man was it annoying when they ran 30-second replays of goals while there was live game action going on.
Perron's move was completely insane. I didn't think it was physically possible to handle the puck so many times across such a short distance of ice. If he pulled that off in a shootout in front of a full house at the Scotty, he wouldn't make it back to Nelson's house that night due to all the puck bunnies throwing themselves at him.
