The good:

Lundqvist - some terrific saves

Avery - been bringing it the last two weeks

Zuccarello - really like this guy

Dubinsky - great work ethic as always

Defense as a whole - great job. Minimized scoring chances while under pressure most of the game

The bad:

Lundqvist - unfortunately a terrible goal like that undoes much of the good when your team can't score

Dubinsky - not a good effort on the second MTL goal. Came off the bench and did not hustle to the shooter. Probably thought the guy was at a bad enough angle where he couldn't score, but...

Gaborik - I agree something is off. Either he's hurt and it's not being announced, or...I don't know. Just not the same guy.

Stepan on the power play point - too much to ask of this kid. Don't like it.

I never, ever, EVER complain about the refs...I think calls tend to even out over the course of a season. But what the heck on that slew foot with the ref five feet away? Who cares about the power play, I don't want to see Dubinsky turn into poor Jeff Beukeboom.

The meh:

Wolski - has skill for sure, but he does not seem to be a pain in the a** to play against like the rest of the team is. First game, just landed, give him some time...but that's the rep he came in with, and that aspect of his game HAS to improve, or he'll be a shootout specialist only on this team.
