I'll track his ice time when I get home from work. I watched the game though and damn, I loved every minute of it - despite being German.

- His goal. Exactly what I am used to seeing him do with the Sting. He has all the patience in the world and the IQ to find some open space. Once he has enough room to let a shot go, he will. I've seen him do it quite a lot this year.

- His second assist. Again, this kid knows how to forecheck hard, especially when he knows the puck carrier is weak on both the puck and the stick. The German defender turned back one too many times and when he went down, it was like a shark smelling blood for Gallchenyuk.

The Galchenyuk-Kuraly-Barber line played well together. Eight points in three periods is quite nice, especially when they score 19 seconds into the 1st and then top that by scoring 14 seconds into the 2nd.
