They just looked plain ol' tired last night, and Ward was rock solid. They could have easily scored 2-3 against another goalie. McCormick and Timmy got robbed by Ward, and Vanek made a sweet move that he easily could have scored on, among others.

Ennis looked much slower than normal. Every time he tried to go wide (which was pretty much every time), he got squeezed by the defenseman and just had to dump it in. Previously, he was beating the d-man regularly and setting up the forecheck or a good scoring play down low.

Myers also looked pretty gassed - and not just on that ridiculous marathon shift he got caught on.

On the plus side, Miller was good, although he gave up a few rebounds that the D did a nice job of cleaning up. Pommers was one of the better players on the ice, and Mancari probably had his best game since last year. Also, the PK continues to be solid.

BTW, and OT, I just saw on another thread that Nieds has the worst career +/- among all active players, at -120. Pretty impressive. (http://www.nhl.com/ice/app?service=p...usMinus&pg=152)
