Z pots the game-winner and adds assists on the game-tying goal and the 5-3 goal. Pavel gets 2 assists when the game is still in doubt, wins 10 of 14 draws, and can't get any love in the poll.

Did people just look at the box score and see the 2 goals? Is this another case of people voting for the new guy because hey look, shiny!

I'm confused.

As much as I hate Cleary, he had a better game than Andersson.
Here's a minor-leaguer that gets a call up, looks really shaky in his first few games, gets the chance to stay in the line up a lot longer than anyone thought, listens to his coaches, keeps plugging away with limited ice time, goes to the tough spots on the ice, improves game after game...

... and gets two goals in one game. It's a nice little story.

If getting the stars in a game absolutely right gets us closer to the Stanley Cup, I'd care. It doesn't, so I don't.
