I would've liked to see Scott after Hartnell got out of the box, should have made that clearer. I think by the time he was out again, we were already up by two. It's why he's in the lineup, so guys like Hartnell don't take those liberties, especially with our captain.
Also, I noticed Stafford from the get go. Was one of the higher energy guys on the ice. He's finally becoming the power forward we all hoped he would be. I really liked his interview that I heard on WGR when coming home from the game too, about how he's not a fighter, but he remarked about how they all have to be tougher to play against, not just with fighting but taking the body. I doubted giving him the A last year, but if he continues to play like he did today he'll absolutely deserve it. Also had a great pass to Vanek (after the tremendous pass from Pominville) one of his goals.
