He was very quiet on even strength.
Spot on, Stralman was also hooked and taken down on the play by Perrault, but there was no whistle. Stralman is very solid and is at times our most consistent defenseman, he wasn't the reason we lost, not even close.

I'm very disappointed in Nash, he seems lost out there sometimes, and likes to float around in the defensive and neutral zones just waiting for the puck sometimes, he needs to crash and bang more so create chances. Callahan too, Erskine did a good job on him, Oates is very underrated with adjustments and match-ups, he sees our weaknesses and does a good job of exploiting them, we use the boards way too much, we need to start using open ice and cut the long stretch pass crap.
