Finally made it to a game so here are my thoughts:
Top line was stellar, Hall was flying and was hands down our best player.
The second line was kind of invisible, Gagner and Hemsky made some decent plays but Yakupov struggled, other than a good chance in front on his backhand and a missed shot. Yak had that terrible giveaway and he did a good job coming back but ultimately it was the sole reason for the third goal.
The third line was good, Belanger dominated on faceoffs and had a great game.
Petrell was OK, Eager was awesome, that hit on Robidas was sensational.
Vande Velde=invisible, probably who Smyth comes in for
On D, Justin Schultz made some decent plays and impressed me for being a rookie. Good with his stick. Smid had a key defensive play and blocked a few shots. Nick Schultz had a few gaffes but had a beautiful hit on Jagr, I didn't notice Fistric too much other than the mini-scrap, Petry was OK but made a few gaffes and could have been stronger. This was Potter's best game in a while, didn't make too many mistakes.
Dubnyk can't really stop the two freak goals, or Jagr's wrister or the breakaway, so no fault for him.
Yakupov had the only stand out mediocre-to-bad game, we should have won that one but Lehtonen was awesome.
