To end on a positive note, Carle's pass to Brière was a thing of beauty. Great to see. Bobrovsky looked solid again as well.
Bob's rebounds scared me a little last night, but they were tough saves in the first place and it kept the D on their feet. The coverage on the only goal wasn't fantastic but it wasn't terrible either, it was really just a good effort by the Oilers. Still can't get that shutout...
Carle's pass really was fantastic. I noticed Pronger and Leino quietly playing much better than they had in the previous few games. Betts was constantly taking a beating making the right plays, great effort. Nice to see Carter and Briere step up as well, we need them to get hot now.
