Almqvist was the scratch tonight as far as the defensive rotation. Nicastro was solid and physical, you don't get around him on the boards very easy and he is very put together. Raedeke also sat in favor of Sheahan.

Smith played a more even game. Ferraro was outstanding again earning his second shorthanded point in as many games, also saw time on the PP. In terms of the big guns Tatar was really the best of the guys up front in terms of jump and looking dangerous. Gus was off tonight, although once again looked much stronger on his skates then last year.

Blashill benched Callahan after his fight. Callahan was aggressive but took 6 PIM just to get his fight and I think that is what the coach had a problem with. Aubry, Grant and Callahan were punishing on the forecheck again when they were together.

McCollum looked decent but allowed his typical terrible stinker in the third.

Hopefully this team can take steps on the road. Not a great start to the season.
Thanks for the update. Did Fournier sit again> Sheahan too?
