Interesting game... kind of ugly, but intense for stretches. Loved the 3 on 3 in OT but wtf was Torts putting McD and Sauer out there 3 on 3

The Good:

Ryan Callahan - He's baaaaaack. Motoring all over the ice, back-checking like a mother, and creating great scoring opportunities. We've missed ya bud.

Marian Gaborik - I admit I have been pretty critical of him, but he was great tonight. I'm not even talking about the goal (which was a lil fortunate IMO) but he was just working hard, cycling, and creating some good chances with Dubi and Prospal.

The "Needs to be Better":

Henrik Lundqvist - Am I blaming the comeback solely on him? No. Am I ignoring the great saves he made tonight? No. But you need your star tender to make the stop on at least one of their third period goals.

The Bad:

Who do we have to...to get a home feed on a nationally televised game? I can only assume this is fallout from MSG/Cablevision's lawsuit with the NHL...but it is getting ridiculous.

The Redden:

Matt Gilroy - Played perhaps the worst period I've seen from an NHL defenseman in the 1st. I don't think he made a single breakout pass and was completely out to lunch on their PP goal. He needs to sit.

We have a just-as-good version in Callahan.

No offense to Cally but if LA ever calls and wants to swap Brown for Cally, I'm taking it

Uh, he WAS on the post. The puck went OFF HIS ****ING HEAD.

It's a fluke goal that would happen once in a million. He was fine where he was, position wise.

He was still on his knees. Not exactly the best goal to give up when your team just scored.

Which one, the one he had lined up that Boyle deflected in, or Brown's shot from the side on a bang bang play that hit Staal's stick, went almost straight up in the air and landed on Hank's shoulder and went in?

I think you're either overrating Callahan or underrating Brownie.

Their games are similar, but Brown is a bit bigger, stronger and has more natural offensive ability.

Its not, but that was a freaky goal. Not sure what else he could do there. He was positioned well

Uh, he was covering the bottom of the net since he was down on the point shot and had to scoot over to cover the other side. What are you talking about? He was in perfect position. That's what butterfly goalies do.

Either you didn't watch the goal or you are not understanding something here.

I do think Brown is better, but the difference isn't as much as some thing, imo.

Henrik has certainly let in a few softies in his career, but I didn't see one tonight.

Primarily the first, but either would do.

Brown is taking a lot of heat from the LA fans. Strange...

I only saw one replay, so I might've missed something, but goals from behind the net are never good goals. I'm not going to be content with it like some people.

I think there is a good chance he decides to look at free agency to see what he's worth.

I think the days of being a good soldier in NJ and signing for less are O V E R

He seems to have replaced softies with deflections off his own teammates

Do you just look at the box score or something? There are goals the goalie can't stop...
