A game like this is very important because its the team overcoming adversity in a game. They hung around, and found a way to get back in it last night. I like the killer instinct shown as well once they got the tying goal. Team had a different sense of urgency and including Eberle and put away a W that they probably weren't getting last season.

This type of game is a proving ground. Went from 4-1 loss to 4-3 W against the same club.

Injuries, and still getting better. Gotta like that.
There was a shift in the 1st that I thought he was very weak on , he had a clear chance to get puck out of zone after they were pinned in for a long time , instead of just nailing down the ice he looked over to see if someone was breaking out. Montreal soon scored after but rest of game he was great.
