Couture, despite only getting one assist, seemed to have a good overall game today. Helps that he stopped a goal too.

Overall a good game though. As I said early, after the first, I was pleasantly surprised by everyone except for Clowe, Murray, and Wingels.
The grades were meant simply against what was expected of them as individuals. Irwin vastly exceeded expectations, as did Marleau, etc. If I had to pick a best forward and best defensemen though it would be Couture or Marleau (tough call) and Vlasic.
