Hrivik-Lindberg-Asham are starting. Miss in the net.

Jean took it deep, MCI skated up to the hash marks, good shot and almost led to a rebound goal.

Miss gives up an early goal. His prior saves were kinda awkward. This started out with a decent save, but he left a rebound. Allen should've held his man better. Not a terrible defensive play, but needs to get better than this to get to the NHL.

MCI no longer looks like he's afraid of the puck. He used to carry it like it was a bomb that needs to be gotten rid of within a split second, but no more.

Jean forechecking and skating well.

Devils 2 on 1. Johnson went down too early, pass from right to left. Nothing that Missionary could do, particularly since he doesn't move well from side to side. 2-0 Debbies.

Johnson is good at the AHL level, but what he lacks would expose him badly in the NHL. He makes stupid mistakes that AHLers can't take advantage of (usually), but NHLers would destroy him.

Kantor hussles and draws a penalty. Kristo with a sliding pass to Allen, but Kinkaid makes a huge save. PP over.

Crosschecking called on the Undertaker in front of Missionary Position. Killed off, but there was a post hit.

Mission playing better in the second half of the period.


More hard work by Kantor. Protected the puck well with his body along the boards and drew a second penalty.

Penalty on Allen, who otherwise looked very good tonight. Good PK, particularly by MCI.

Lindberg is playing (and doing it well) in every possible situation, including both special teams.

Big save by Miss on a shot from up close.

Kantor with a big hit.

Kristo with a great rush around the defensemen, but Kinkaid stopped it. Kinkaid is a good goalie.

Another Kristo rush draws a penalty. Syvret hits the goal post. Penalty killed.

Matteau hit O'Donnell, committing a penalty. OD drops gloves and punishes Matteau. Still a Pack PP. Syvret with a nice shot, but glove save by Kinkaid. Anothe good shot by Lindberg stopped by Kinkaid. A good PP, but Kinkaid is acting as if beach balls are thrown at him, not pucks.

Can't say this is Johnson's best game. Not awful, just not good.


Huge blocker save by Kinkaid on Asham's close up slap shot.

Miss with a pair of solid saves.

Nash with a very nice move around the defenseman, shot, but another stop by Kinkaid. Pack is playing well, but Kinkaid is beating them. He's the difference this game.

Jean with a great pass to Johnson, sending him on a short breakaway, but another Kinkaid stop.

Jean is having a very good game. Another nice rush by him.

Penalty on Bickel. MCI with a very good clear to Bourque that almost sent him on a fast break, but the defenseman caught up.

Devil around Nash. Sprawling save by Miss. The puck went in, but after the whistle.

One man called on each time. 4 on 4 for the final 2 minutes. Pack pull their goalie, bad bounce and it's 3-0.
