So in addition to being a great passer, Semin is a decent forechecker as well. And he can be responsible defensively.

Love Semin. Love Faulk. McBain was good- he actually tried to hit people and shove them around. Love Hockey Beiber. Love both the Staal's. E. Staal was jealous of Skinner and decided to one up him. Jordan was good.

Actual notes:

Tlusty didn't look out of place.

Semin has been "Boychuk" good, in that he does looks good, but he hasn't converted. Unlike Boychuk, Semin can forecheck. He and Staal had some great cycles going.

Faulk was great (again), though he was on the ice for two goals. One was assist of the year by Vanek, and the other was the goal by Pominville. We'll see if we can pin some of those on him.

E. Staal was overpowering Myers all night. Staal seems to do better against people like Chara and Myers- players that rely on being stronger than everyone else. Staal isn't one of the 95% of the NHL that they can push around.

Bowman looked pretty good, but our third line with Jokinen and Char didn't really do anything all night. They weren't bad, but they didn't produce anything.

Let's see what happens tomorrow. But a great win, great game to be at.
