His line was good every shift they took last night.
I thought Cherry was complaining that Antropov wasn't scratched. Grapes has been on this guy for a while because Antropov hasn't been using his size to his advantage. Heck, he had a one-on-one coming out of the corner, leaning on Kapanen(that's right, Sami Kapanen) and instead tried feeding the point instead of driving to the net.
Anyways, Francis has been pretty good on the PP and I thought he'd be dressed over Antropov. *shrug*
