The Good -

- Ward and Miller. Miller had the harder chances and came up with some steller saves. Ward had a lot to the outside and was very calming for the 'Canes.
- Myers. I haven't checked the ToI, but he was one of the few Sabres skating, taking the body and doing much of anything after the first period.
- Mancari putting Ruutu on his ass after Ruutu ran Sekera.

The Bad -

- So many opportunities, so few good chances.
- Their passing was off most of the night.
- PP retrievals and motion were almost non-existent.
- The Niedermayer goalie interference penalty was... dubious at best.

The Ugly -

- Montador left us with a flashback to last year's Western road trip tonight. He was beyond bad.
- As bad as Kaleta has played of late, they missed the element of physical play he ignites in the team. Too many times people pealed off rather than finish a check. I'm not looking for board-rattling hits, just finish a hit and knock your man down. Myers did it. Weber had a few moments, as did Gaustad. But the rest of the team was woefully unprepared or unwilling for any sort of physical game.
