Josefson looked absolutely tremendous tonight and had almost 19 minutes of ice-time, however i'm slowly coming to the conclusion that Tedenby just does not mesh with this team and i think we'd be better off exploring other options at this point. Henrique is back soon, but we definitely need to add another top 6 winger to replace Tedenby in my opinion, Kovalchuk playing 30 minutes is a little too much even though he's physically fit enough to handle it probably.

Additionally, deserved praise for our 3rd/4th line of Carter, Gionta and Bernier; those guys played with some serious energy and intensity tonight, all three were fantastic along the boards, cycling the puck and winning battles constantly. They are the perfect group of 4th line players as i see it, although none of them are blessed with amazing hands, they simply outwork their opponents on EVERY shift. Those three deserve some major credit.
