Allen's skating was impressive and he was able to join the rush a few times. I wouldn't put him on the same level as McDonagh or Moore but he was easily as fast as Staal or Stralman. I was surprised.

I liked the Haley-Moore-Dorsett line as an energy line. Haley was much better in this game than last night. Skated well and threw some good hits. He was PKing as well which would be a plus.

Lindberg made quite a few underrated little plays. He would easily have an effect on every game even if he isn't scoring. He reminds me a lot of Stepan with his hockey IQ and strong positional play.

McIlrath was either bad, or good. No middle ground. He was laying some good hits and clearing the crease but his pinches were ill timed.

Fast looks like a smaller version of Brassard with the way he sees the ice and controls the puck. He and Kristo are very similar as well as far as their size and overall game.

Pouliot is going to get lucky this year if he can stay on a line with Brassard and Zuccarello. They were able to make quite a few plays and buzz around the Philly zone quite a bit.
That stick-lift in front of Talbot, awesome.
