Terrific showing by Bernier...I'm sure the goalies in the audience will tell us it's not easy to keep your focus when doing nothing for extended periods of time then suddenly facing a golden opportunity! Hope he gets two in a row.

Penner looks good...the whole having-a-first-line thing is pretty sweet. Kopitar looked ballsy with the puck tonight...I don't know if that was a function of showing off for the new guy, or if Penner was really opening up a lot of space, but he sure showed some drive and creativity tonight in what was an otherwise no-space tight game.

That 4th line was as good a fourth line as any team could really hope for, in my opinion. Possession time, speed, and hitting. Perfect.

Mitchell, guts.

I know it wasn't the most exciting game, but two defensive-minded coaches facing off in a divisional game = chess. Boring or not (I personally didn't think it was), I think most can appreciate how tightly contested every inch of ice was tonight. Great game!
