On Legwand-- everybody in my car on the way home immediately disagreed with the caller's negative assessment. Was this a 'lights out' performance by Leggy? No, but I thought it was pretty solid, even if I didn't catch everything Pred303 cited.
Erat has to be kicking himself for not converting that breakaway. We all know he has the skill and brains to be a 'go to' guy, and I think over the course of the next 80 games that will be evident.
Finally, I was very impressed with Suter's play. He had some great poke checks, positioned himself well over all, broke up some chances. Much improved performance as he continues to adjust.
I did think the officiating was not consistent in applying the new rules as I've seen in games on CI.
Ducks are a pretty formidable team, I think. The seemed to be playing some variant of a lock defense as the Preds penetrated the zone-- did anyone else see it that way?
