The faceoffs sucked tonight ... aside from Goose. The PP was hit or miss ... the a couple looked good but didn't convert, a couple we were completely unable to establish a presence. Still 20% conversion tonight. SK held at least three pucks in at the point on the PP ... but that gets overlooked.

Radulov not getting the puck to the net. He needs to realize this isn't the KHL and the talent he's facing is a lot better. Legwand and Fisher sucked at the dot. Rinne off his game for most of the night. Bad first 30-45 mins ... good play for the third and OT.

Smith is a beast in net. Ask Chicago. To beat him we need to screen him, have players in front of the net to collect rebounds, then quickly put those back on net elevated ... and that's not a guaranteed formula for success.

Funny how many of our fans saw them as an easy target and thought sweep or five. This is another dogfight.
