Regarding Staal's absence affecting our offense...Girardi and McDonagh weren't bad the other night but when Staal's in the lineup that pair is a lot more effective when it comes to getting the puck out of our zone as quickly as possible and moving it up the ice. Staal may not tally a bunch of points or play huge powerplay minutes or anything, but you can't score if you're stuck in your own end of the ice, and it hurts that much more when you're stuck there while the other team's first line is on the ice.
