Too many bad turnovers for us, led to a couple goals - also Aucoin losing his jock strap at mid ice. Wow terrible play.
RyJo, Calvert and Prospal played very well. Prospal is as close as we have to a playmaker and I think he is clearly helping the youngsters. Not a slam against prospal he's just older and with the shortened season he's still working himself into game shape.
Chicago is really a good team, holding them to 3 goals is a good effort all the way around.
I think the power play looks better. Against Detroit we were struggling just to pass the puck around the perimeter looking for a shot. Last night it seemed like we had a plan (many times a 2 man game a man on top/center trying to get Wiz (usually) on his left hand side the puck with a line to the goal. Very simple but to me it seemed more effective.
I would add John Moore as well. He is not much of an offensive force "yet" but what a terrific skater. Seeing him live last night you get a better perspective just how effortless his skating is and a big reason why he is never out of position. Hopefully his offensive game develops and people will begin noticing his overall game more.
He might be a rare CBJ first rounder that actually pans out.
