5-0 win for Kitchener. An abysmal game from Sarnia, but Galchenyuk was the only Sting player who decided to show up. However, he was held pointless.
Galchenyuk started off the game playing hard. He finished three checks. Then he got way too fancy with the puck and turned it over in his own zone. He showed some great hands on the PP (like normal) and one particularly good play. The centre of the ice was open and he jumped right into it and dangled through 3 players and then made a nice pass. He was fairly engaged in the first, but struggled to control the puck at times. In the second he was pretty quiet. His skill was very evident, with a ton of nifty dekes and passes (that weren't always accurate). He had one particular nice spin and shoot play. He turned the puck over on the PP with a weird pass. He passed it right to the Kitchener player while looking right at him. Following that, he had a nice pass where he cut to the centre, deked the pants of the defender, and passed it to the point. Galchenyuk's third period was terrible. He kicked it off with a horrible clearing pass that resulted in a great scoring chance for Kitchener. He did have a nice play where he stole the puck behind the net, and then went right to the net and somehow passed it to Boucher, but nothing came out of it. He also had a nice head fake/toe drag deke that put two Rangers of their butts, pretty awesome play. Then he made like three dumb passes that got intercepted to close out the period.
Overall, I don't want to talk about it. That was a terrible effort from Sarnia. Galchenyuk had a poor game, he turned over the puck a ton, but he did have some quality plays. Just a terrible game from everyone, and Galchenyuk was clearly frustrated with their performance. That was probably the worst I've seen him play since the season opener.
-Sarault was ****ing terrible. He couldn't make a pass and couldn't shoot either.
-Connor Murphy couldn't handle the puck at all tonight. However, he actually made some decent plays defensively.
-Anthony DeAngelo needs to quit playing hero every shift. He needs to slow down the game and use his teammates more. He's trying too hard. He made a stupid spin around behind the back pass right on the blue line, directly behind him on the PP. No one was there.
-Justin Bailey was great tonight. He stole the puck a ton and showed some great speed. He was awesome along the boards too.
-Brent Pederson had a great game too. He was all over the ice and created every shift.
-Radek Faksa was very solid. Typical Faksa game. Great defensively and some craftiness offensively. Picked up 2 assists.
-I didn't even notice Ryan Murphy tonight. It's like watching a completely different player, he has no confidence with the puck any more. Either that, or he's trying to work on his defensive game. Which has come a long way, that's for sure.
