I think the Yak benching had as much to do with protecting the lead as it did with Yak not playing well. To expect a 19 yr old rookie to mesh with Hemsky when we've seen veterans come in here and struggle to do that may be asking a lot of him still.

I'm giving Nail lots of slack, and it was nice to see Kruger put him out in that last minute. Kids a gamer no doubt, he's just trying to hard to get some flow with Hemmer but he is usually trailing the play late it seems after circling too deep when Hemsky and Gagner break out. They'll figure it out soon, too skilled not too.
