Last night was one of the best games I've seen Jackman play in a long time. He was excellent. I've never understood the hate for the guy. When used properly he's a great guy to have. Him and Shattenkirk are excellent together. IMO, they've been our most consistent pairing so far. As for Oshie, he seems to have found another gear this year. He's been our best player by far. The captain should take a few pointers. Backes wears the C but it's plain to me that Osh is one of the leaders on this team.
