I was at the game, and the wife wanted seats close to the glass so I was in the second row (meaning my view of the other end of the ice was partially obstructed by the bench.

From what I got to see in the offensive zone for the 1st and 3rd period, Palmieri looked great. He seemed to mesh well with Cullen, and considering how many odd man rushes Clutterbuck had, it seemed both Cullen and Palmieri were strong in the defensive zone. I have to give Scandella a lot of credit on Cullen's goal, but that play was all created by Palmieri's work. If assists were awarded by "who created the goal" rather than "who touched the puck at this exact time" then Palmieri definitely would have had one on that goal. I still can't believe he didn't pot that wraparound.

Veilleux was very physical. Can't say I saw much of him outside of his hits, but he definitely made himself noticable with some of those.
