He didn't get a point and didn't register as a star but I can clearly state that Samuellson was the best skater yesterday for either side. His offensive creativity is better than I expected. He routinely was setting up plays and played a very strong two way game. Was robbed by Makarov early in the first. Liked his first two periods more than I liked his third as it felt like the Oil Kings were okay with holding the lead rather than putting the Blades away.

rt, before you ask about Lazar I have to say it's like I'm watching a different player than the one I was watching in October. In October he looked like a sure fire first or second line center. Now, I'm wondering if his role is as a energy player. Of course I wasn't impressed with Getzlaf years ago when I was drooling about the skill set of Sjostrom so take my opinion for what it's worth.
All Lazar needed was for me to trash talk him. Hat trick for him tonight. Samuelsson with two helpers.
