I'm not gonna criticize him on a night like tonight, just like I'm not gonna criticize a guy like Marty, it wasn't their fault.
Moving at his speed? Hemsky is at his best when he slows it right down and finds the open man....

He isn't nearly as effective at full speed as he is when he controls the pace. He had an alright game, but he blew a couple of good scoring chances by either not shooting, or like that stupid drop pass at the blueline on the powerplay.
