IMO he stood out more in game 1, but was good in both games.

Hall is still shaking off some rust it seems.

This team needs another player or two like Byers out there.
Agreed, Green is really missed right now. Our big 3 are kind of like that even at the NHL level it's feast or famine for them. If Hall knocked off some of the rust I'd prefer to see him playing with Arcobello and Pitlick to spread the wealth around:

Green-RNH-Eberle
Hall-Arcobello-Pitlick
Paajarvi-Lander-Hartikainen
Hamilton-House/Vande Velde-Byers

I thought for the first time all year we had most of our lines playing with purpose and intensity.
