1-1 after one. They mostly dominated the period, especially the first half, but took a penalty and gave up the first goal on the ensuing PP. Immonen then led a nice breakaway (2-on-2) with Callahan, threaded a saucer pass between two defensemen to Callahan who made a great move driving to the net and scored a goal while crashing into the goalie.
The only line sticking out is the Dawes/Immonen/Callahan line, who I'd guess had nearly 10 shots in the period and missed more than half that amount and has been cycling very well. I'd guess they'll score again this game.
The other lines are Korps/Dubi/Isbister, which was mostly quiet (didn't notice Korps one bit, and Dubi's been good in the faceoff circle), especially the wingers; Byers/Helminen/Moore, which was mostly quiet (Byers did make some noise in front of the net once) and Lessard and Weller are the other two forwards, neither of whom were noticeable.
On defense, Girardi was looking good, making nice, smart passes. He's paired with Liffiton. Baranka had a couple agressive shifts, and played with Richter. Purinton and Degon have been mostly quiet.
Valiquette was not tested much in the first. I think he could've had the first goal.
The 'Pack PP looks like the Rangers' PP.
