1) The powerplay is getting figured out. Pressure Giroux means success. Timonen isn't making a difference. Voracek hesitates to shoot and Hartnell and Simmonds won't make plays.

2) Briere should help the second line. Our lines 2-4 we're very ineffective offensively. Lot's of hard work, no scoring chances created.

3) Defensively this D looks great. Grossmann is awesome, Meszaros looked fine and Schenn showed some promise. Coburn needs to get his skating back, he looked unusual slow today. Timonen really shows his age, imo. Foster was ok. We need someone to move the puck.

4) Laughton was very good. Concerning strenght I think he looked like he belonged. No one really knows conditioning-wise. Also pretty physical.

5) Simmonds still needs to cut down on his stupid deking and spinning around. Straight forward game is needed from him.

6) Read played well above his size, some nice hits.
