Wow Marty was great tonight. This was as good of an opener I've seen him play since probably in 08 against the Islanders, which was the last time we won the first game of the season. It's also the first time he's given up less than 3 goals in the season opener since 08. He wasn't tested incredibly much for long points during the game, and I thought that could be his downfall, but he did make some big stops, and that glove stop on the PK late in the game is something he's usually prone to giving up in an opener. His rebound control also wasn't as bad as I remember from the last few openers either.

It was a good game defensively. The PK needs some work. I just don't wanna give up a PP goal every game especially since most games you're gonna give up some even strength goals. The Isles had a top 5 PP last year though I believe. There were a lot of statues on that PP goal. No chance for Marty. The PP looked really bad, but it could be gelling to the new system. There were some head scratchers though like Bernier on the PP with 30 seconds left in it? Tallinder had a pretty good game, Zidlicky had an okay game, First line was decent, second wasn't too bad. Nabokov made some big stops too, but we controlled possession for the most part.
