Hmm, to comment shortly on the game, I thought Coburn had a really good game this time. But, again, it's his streakiness that bothers me. Grossmann was a rock this time, as well.

If there's a Streit bandwagon, I'm on it. If not, I'll start it. As for the other two new guys, Raffl was excellent on the PK, but he just can't get a shot on the goal for the life of him. Vincenzo has his up and down moments, but is, I think, still the best player on the team.

I did not care much for Giroux finally getting his first goal. Oh, and on a related note, I was impressed with Belov on the Oilers team. He also shouldn't have gotten a major for that check on Giroux.

I'm satisfied with the win, obviously, but I hate how they can't get a shorthanded breakaway going, there's always a pass gone bad somewhere in the mix. Same with the empty net goal. A lot of people were making fun of Carter on the Kings team when he scored an empty-netter. Well, it seems there's an art to that, as well. We haven't even begun to learn it, let alone master it. It's not crucial, but still.

Oh, and Rinaldo's play seems to have regressed under Berube. I don't know what it is, but he doesn't really seem to be his old self or what he was last season. He's making stupid plays again, and his passing has been terrible at times. But I guess with the team playing better, that's something we can live with.
