I've watched parts of 3 Kings games now, and Carter has struck me as their best forward...though tonight I'd say Gagne was fighting for that title. Brown has been invisible. I noticed Kopitar, but not really in a positive way. Doughty is a damned beast. At one point a Nuck had the puck in his own D zone. Doughty skated up to him and didn't really hit him, so much as he shoved him so hard he slid 10 feet away. Then he took the puck. I don't know what Doughty did in the offseason, but I assume it involved bench pressing motor vehicles.

The Oiler game was a lot more fun to watch. Their forward corps sees defense as offense that's really far from the net. We ***** about our team, but wow...I don't know how often Colorado just skated through the neutral zone completely unchallenged while Edmonton watched. Hell, once one of their forwards (Hall?) skated alongside an Av, essentially escorting him in, his stick in a nonexistent passing lane.
