Stewart...I rather expect to have these sort of issues...
Oshie has looked...off...for a bit now. He is doing things which remind me of Perron when he first came in the league where, instead of making the smart play, he tries way, way too much and gets exposed. Also not seeing the hitting I prefer from him.
Perron was the one I was surprised by. Typically he come to life in these sort of games and for the most part has been very impressive as of late. I suppose anyone can have an off-game it was just unfortunate he was playing off when the rest of the team seemed to be as well.
