Had a pretty good time at the game tonight. Boy did Hockey Canada ever do things up right for this. They were saying 16k+ in attendance for this one, and it sure looked full. Crowd was fairly knowledgeable and knew who to cheer and who to boo. Heatley did NOT see the love tonight, and there was a noticeable smattering of boos for Cleary as well.

-Brodeur stole the show. The guy is not ready for a changing of the guard just yet and looked like a Vezina winner several times, including stopping Rick Nash point blank on a one timer in the 1st.

-Carter and Richards were together all night and looked pretty good out there. Had some rough spots early on, but got it together as the night went on and popped one eventually.

-Pronger is a beast, and Duncan Keith might just be the most under-rated player in the league. As solid as they come.

-Nobody told Ryan Smythe and Shane Doane that they were only given courtesy invites to camp. Those guys looked READY tonight and were constantly around the puck, making things happen.

-Lucic was BEGGING for a chance to smoke someone.

-Iginla and Toews looked good together and were very close to making something happen, but were just a little "off". Chemistry not quite there.

-Crosby and Thornton looked soft on the puck and both coughed it up a few times. Crosby spent a lot of time floating at the far blue line waiting for a pass.

That's just a few thoughts from the Row 7 Club Seats - off to bed now. Anyone else??
