3-2 win for Plymouth. Galchenyuk was held pointless for the 4th time this season.
Galchenyuk had a pretty quiet first period. He had a suicide pass to Basso, which seems to becoming a habit for Galchenyuk. He did have an incredible cross ice pass to Sarault (which is slightly losing it's "incredible-ness" because he does it every game), and also had another beauty pass when he was along to the boards. At the end of the first he pulled the between his legs and went around the defender to drive the net. However, the Plymouth goalie got his stick on it. In the second Galchenyuk was even quieter. He had a nice move on the PK. He cut across the ice going through the entire team and then sent it back into his own zone killing the clock. He had was setup beautifully later on, but for some reason decided not to shoot all alone in front. In the third, Galchenyuk was even quieter. He lost a puck battle to kick it off, and then also missed another nice chance by not shooting.
Overall, that was poor effort from Galchenyuk. Sure he had some nice moves, but he should have had a hattrick tonight. SHOOT THE PUCK. He seemed afraid to shoot the puck for some reason tonight. He had quite a few turnovers too, but none were costly. He was skating a playing hard, but couldn't get anything going. I'm sure only getting about 18-20 minutes of ice time wasn't exactly a good thing though.
-Dundas had an up and down night. He started off the game by taking a knee from Sills, but he went after him and proceeded to beat the crap out of Sills. He had a goal from a laser of a shot and showed some nice hands at multiple occasions. He took a dumb penalty though and also had his fair share of turnovers.
-DeAngelo had a terrible turnover that resulted in a goal. Just bad. However he picked up his play as the night went on. He absolutely crushed someone tonight, he seems to developing an edge.
-Connor Murphy was very very solid tonight. Looked very calm and poised. Made some good outlet passes.
-Latta was all over the ice tonight. He finished with a goal. He had some very nice plays.
-Rickard Rakell had a solid night. He stole the puck countless times and showed off his hands quiet a few times. I would have liked to see more consistency from shift to shift though.
-Noesen had a great night. Sarnia played him hard all night, but he kept on going. He had a few interceptions too. He was a bit quieter in the third.
-Ryan Hartman was very good tonight. He played with a ton of intensity and a ton of chances.
