Controlled much of the game from start to finish. Good road game.
Columbus fans complained after the first 2 games that the refs gave us all the calls and they lost. Well now they got all the penalties (and a 5-on-3 that they got ZERO shots on) and still couldn't still beat us. But now I read they are still complaining?! Complain about this, out of our 4 PPs, only ONE was a full 2 minutes, or even had the chance to go 2 minutes. Two started as a 4-on-4 and the last one was called with under a minute left in the game. And we were on the PK for almost 10 minutes of the second period and we still scored 3 goals! One of the least penalized teams in the league gets 8 penalties and the team with a top 5 PP can only score 2 times, CBJ deserved to lose!

I didn't see the game, but the stats would indicate that Kevin Klein had a solid performance: 2 assists, 3 blocked shots, lead the team in ice time, +2. What's the opinion on him this season?
What the stats don't tell is that he and Hamhuis were on the ice for both PK goals against.
I'm not sure why Trotz reunited that pairing. It was brutal in the early season, and it's looked bad lately, and Klein\Bouillon and Hamhuis\Franson(or in this case Sulzer) looked a good deal better.
The problem seems to be that both of these guys are passive d-zone players. They've both got a terrible habit of playing the puck over the body(Hamhuis's hipchecks off the rush not withstanding), and it gets them burned a little too often.
