I PVR most games and decided to go back to the first period to see why Eller and AK were benched.

On the Rangers goal, Diaz and Emelin (although I like them both) were quite lost in their zone and contributed to the goal as much as Eller. For the rest of the period, Eller seemed a bit out of synch with his lineamates but it looked like the effort was there. Bench him for a shift or two after the play, but don't wait until the next period to bench him.

As far as AK, he had nothing to do with the Ranger goal and I saw 6 or 7 really nice creative plays. It's easy to single out a lost battle or a bad decision, but for every bad play, there are 3 or 4 really good plays. It's too bad the "experts" don't always show both sides when being critical of a player.
