- Vanek. A 5-point night shouldn't go in the Bad or Ugly lol.
- Physical play. So happy to see players other than Kaleta throwing out some solid checks. Foligno, Ott, Regehr. Probably see Scott and/or McCormick participating in that too when needed and when healthy. Stafford with a random fight (took a nasty right in it too).
- Grigorenko didn't look lost at all. Didn't make a big impact but made a few great, hardworking plays. Always seemed to know where his linemates were... and it's his first NHL game.
- Really solid power plays. Once they broke into the zone, the passing was great. Can't remember the last time the power play was that consistent.
- Glad we're the ones injuring teams for a change.
- The refs helped us out a bit more than I'd like. The goaltender interference call was really weak.
- Some sloppy play, especially in the second. Hopefully it's just rust. Though admittedly (and maybe it's just Buffalo pessimism)... I feel like this team always has a bit too much sloppiness in their game.
- Hartnell. Two hits from behind, two smaller guys. Meh.
