Kostitsyn with a solid game as he clicked a little more with his teammates as he gets used to our system and players. His goal was a pretty simple redirect after Weber made a great pass. His play is a bit risky sometimes, so he will create turnovers during games, you wonder how far Trotz will go to limit his offensive play.
Lombardi seemed to create a ton of chances from his speed alone. Sometimes it looked like nothing was going to happen until he used his speed to create a turnover or beat a guy.
Lundmark was really poor, unless he has shown more in camp, I don't see him making the team.
Parent is slow to the puck but is able to get guys off the puck. His puck-handling skills leave much to be desired.
Bouillon stopped a sure goal in the third, but overall didn't look up to par, still struggled to get the puck out of the zone, and put Klein in a few bad positions tonight with poor passes trying to get out of the zone.
I see more struggles with our team moving the puck out of the defensive zone this season, forcing turnovers near the blueline or causing more icings.
I don't like Erat and Wilson together, you really need a shooter on that line.
The team overall was really close to getting a few more goals, oftentimes inches away from stringing together passes. Again, the ice played into this a bit.
And it's nice to see a captain stand up for teammates, we haven't had that in a while. Weber immediately went to challenge Byfuglien after his hit on Smithson late in the game. You don't want to see hits like that during preseason to be honest.
