Pretty good stuff. \He also made some quick plays to get the puck out of the zone and layed a couple of good hits. I think his offensive instincts look pretty good too.

I've been pretty impressed with Bourdon's game as he learns to adapt to the NHL level. He'll have his share of rookie mistakes and bad nights but I'm seeing things in him...his instincts, his two-way game, his strength and physicality that, if refined, could make for a solid top 4 d man.
i thought he was completely and perfectly fine before tonight but he broke down so much last night it was just terrible. I guess it was just a bad night in general seeing as how even Timonen played like crap at times.
