Surprised not to see Alex and Murphy back in the lineup since Latta played, but understandable they were given the night off. Dawe continues to be impressive in goal, he was handed his first loss of the season but was peppered with 27 shots compared to Sarnia's 17 on the Soo. Maybe the Sting will go with him even when Barrick returns to full health, I wouldn't mind.
I thought Galchenyuk and Murphy were out of the line-up because they are heading out to NHL camp. Not sure why keeping Dawe would be a consideration over Barrick. Dawe and Hergott are with the team because JP and Barrick are hurt. They would not have have been brought to Sarnia otherwise as I have heard there was no unhappiness with their goaltending situation before the injuries. Dawe is an OA next year so I don't see JB keeing him over Barrick, who is younger and who also has a full education package as per the write up when he signed. You never know of course but I just don't see it happening.
