Yeah, he was very noticable,... especially on the giveaway leading to the Isles 2nd goal....

What kills me on this play (the very begining) is that there are 3 Isles up high right in front of him! How could he not dump the puck down low along the boards where there would be a man advantage. This is a mistake a rookie would make, forcing a pass through.

He did have 2 assists on the nite, but neither were great setups. He more or less moves the puck to avoid having the puck taken from him. I saw no dead plays he kept alive. Infact, just the opposite. More often than not when he had the puck, it was taken from him and the play died. Watch his game carefully, and you'll see this is true. He is still great on faceoffs and the PK, but that's it.
