Staal played strong for his first game back. Expect better games to come. He helps a lot. Showed tonight in breaking up plays.

Secondary guys got it done tonight. Brassard, Boyle, Zuccarello, Asham, and Pyatt (who was not that bad) played well. Richards and Hagelin were the worst forwards on the team. Cally, Step and Nash playd well, drew a couple PPs and finally cashed in on the GWG.

They finally started calling the Caps on their dirty plays. High hits, hooks and holds were finally called. Outside of the first 2 PPs, it looked much better. PK was awesome as well.

Goals were not on Hank. DZ needed to clear that Green goal. They were changing and he had time. Allowed the puck to play him. Deflections are not the goalies fault. Losing a faceoff on the 3rd goal. Backstrom deflection was nice. Cannot blame anyone.

They collapsed less in the 3rd and it was their best period. Doing more of that in game 4 and it can become a best of 3 series. Thought they looked good overall. Keep shooting on Holtby. He showed he is not capable of coming up big. 4 goals and a post from Richie. Have to play this way in game 4. Hank will get us the W if we do.
Another great report from someone who was there.
If you push and stress Holtby, he wil be what he is, a very ordinary goaltender.
