Steen finished at 56% on faceoffs (second most taken on the team).

Reaves did what he does very well, but he only had 6:39 in TOI (after having 5:25 in his previous game). Read into that what you will, but my take is that he needs to round out the finer points of his game to see the ice in anything but the most favorable situations.

The team was a bit sloppy in the first, but really elevated the sharpness of their execution as the game went on. Their puck management was solid all night...lesson learned, obviously. They'll need to show they can repeat that sort of performance against teams with fresh legs (or when their own legs are tired), but a lot of positives to take from this game regardless.
