My only complaint is that even with all the possession time, they didn't seem to create much in the way of high-quality chances (duh, otherwise they would've scored).
Another comment... I wonder if something was going on with Jagr. Sick or something maybe.. It seems like he was short-shifted a bunch. Loui and Roy would stay out for a full shift, but it seemed like 68 would only be out there for the first half of it..
