Sutter - Miss Staal like crazy, but if he continues to play like that...I'm gonna start forgetting how to spell Stahl.
Cooke-Sutter-TK - This line brought it today. I thought they played excellent
TK - Lots of energy today, gave it his all (maybe not the most skilled but brought it none the less) today.
Geno-Neal - Combo doesn't look like it lost a step. Nice goal.
Glass - Not bad for his debut.
MAF - Like previously stated, good but not great...but it was good enough to win us the game and that is his job. I think its safe to say he shaked the bad Philly demons from last year. Hopefully he keeps it going.
Martin - He has a long way to go to win us back...but this was a start in the right direction.
Letang - Pretty standard showing for us.
Niskanen - Solid performance today. He might be able to fit on the 1st pairing.
Despres - Decent showing today for him. A few times he looked uneasy but other times he showed the poise of an experienced dman. Give him time and I think he will impress.
Engelland - Solid
Special Teams - Hard to whine about it. PK was impressive but stressful to watch given last years playoffs. PP got us a goal so... +
Crosby - Rare. Played well but certainly not the Sid we are used to seeing, especially against Philly. He took some hard shots too. Looked reserved.
Kunitz - Zero impact. Gifted the goal to Giroux. Thats a lazy highschool play...not a NHL player play.
Dupuis - See Kunitz.
Tangradi - Decent game...but thats not gonna cut if you wanna hang out with Malkin and Neal
Jeffrey - See Tangradi. Vitale should have gotten the nod.
Orpik - The one goal Philly scored was created by you. You were MEH all game.
Bylsma - Vitale needs to be in over Jeffrey or Adams. Take your pick...but Joe Victory has earned his place. If you are gonna try ET on Geno-Neal's line...GIVE HIM THE CHANCE! This off and on crap is NOT the way to do it.
Giroux and Hartnell - **** off you two philly *****.
