My game observations:

-Howard played a great game. I will say that the first shot was savable, I do not blame him for it as Ryder is a sniper and was given too much time, but for this team to have any sort of success this year, Jimmy is going to have to make the saves he is SUPPOSED TO, and a lot he isn't.
-We can toot Howard's horn all day, but in reality, if it were not for Kari Lehtonen, this game could've been lopsided our way.
-Brunner finally nets one on a dead tired Kari Lehtonen, good to see him put one in after being robbed a solid 4-5 times earlier in the game. I know Z and Brunner played together in the Swiss league, but I like the Pav/Brunner chemistry more. Pav draws so many guys to him and is so good moving the puck in traffic, and Brunner has all the skill to deliver when Pav sets him up.
-Filppula is so much stronger on the puck than I can ever remember him. He might have the tie for second best set of hands on the team with Brunner(behind Pav of course).
-Hank is trying to do way too much.
-Huskins was a solid pickup. I liked his defensive play, especially for his first game in a long time. Could be a VERY solid signing by Holland as a foundation #5/6 guy.
-We're 1-2 right now, without Jonathan Ericsson, Darren Helm, and Todd Bertuzzi. RELAX everyone. We are going to be getting back our two best PK'ers soon in Helm and Ericsson, and a big body with skill in Bertuzzi. I like our team this year.
