The new guys were simply excellent. All of them. They all fit the system, and look like great pick-ups and add ins. Conacher will get all of the attention, but Carlo and Salo really have changed the way the defense feels. Not to mention Lindback seems legit. He needs to grow some more, but his upside seems far better than his downside. You no longer expect to get scored on every time the oppenet touches the puck at least. haha

And I am kinda happy that Stamkos didn't score. It showed that the Bolts arent one dimensional like last year. Its a really good sign i think.

More importantly, are there any videos of Vinny's hit? I didnt see it, but it sounded like it was a nasty hit.
I can't find it anywhere. Hillen is just 5'9 and 190 so Vinny sent him flying into the boards, both went down but Hillen got the worst of it (he left the game favoring his left shoulder). Let's hope he's alright.

The NHL.com game highlights only have Ovechkin's open ice hit on Conacher: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...=sb:highlights

Edit: Here it is: http://www.csnwashington.com/hockey-...lecavalier-hit (CSN, video). JB calls it a "dirty check from Vincent Lecavalier".
