Today was an off day for both the Finns and Yanks. I thought both would win, and came up empty-handed.

Barkov didn't play bad, but also didn't put in his best effort. He was really deferring to pass to Teuvo most of the game, rather than taking it upon himself.

Jones, like Barkov, showed some real flashes of why he's so adored by just about everyone, but his problem today was mental mistakes. Coughing up the puck in his own zone, not making the safe play, passing across in front of his own net under pressure, and the lead feet and waving he did on the winnig goal.

One game is nothing. These two took some lumps today, and it should serve as a wake-up call for both. Re-focus, and put in a better effort.

I expect big games from both individuals, as well as their teams in the next fixture.
