I agree the line wasn't any good but Pearson did look very good for a rookie in his first game that is also a playoff game. I like his game and he looked like he can play in the NHL.
What DS has me questioning is the Ellerby/Muzzin pairing and then Ellerby being out on the ice in OT during a playoff game. It was his mistake that allowed that pile of Shark excrement to score the game winning goal. He leaves the man in the slot open in favor of watching the guy along the boards.
I still don't get DS' pairing two kids. Ellerby had an alright game and Muzzin did too but that mistake is what rookies make and to have them out there in OT under those circumstances is crazy.
