Rinne was just fantastic. I probably sound like a broken record stating so at this point but .. wow.

Maybe a little rusty after the break, but it's a point! And some positives to take out of it: goaltending and special teams. Overall though, neither team showed up 100%, and neither team played significantly better than the other. A shoot out between Kiprusoff and Rinne might as well be a coin toss. Obviously Rinne has been better as of late and has a great shoot out record, but they're both really excellent goaltenders.

Two comments about Bridgestone Arena:
1. Calgary play by play crew mentioned numerous times what a good, loud crowd there was, especially for a Tuesday night. Good job guys.
2. I can't remember the last time I saw such terrible ice. It looked like the game was being played on a racquetball court (with a racquetball) ... I heard something about humidity, was there a big change in weather this past weekend or something?? Hope it improves, with so many home games coming up
