Ok so that's the kind of first period we needed. Rinne wasn't tested all that much, but he wasn't given a break either. Some scary moments where he had to be aware, but we did a pretty good job of either deflecting, blocking, or forcing shots.
We're letting them win the physical battle, but not by so much that it will hurt us I think. SOB had a pretty good period. At the end he looked close to taking a retaliation penalty, but if he can keep his head he'll be fine.
Tootoo headed back to the dressing room before the 1st was over. Let's hope that it's just an equipment malfunction. The guy has an assist and 4 shots on goal in the period.
When Getzlaf was trying to fight his way across the crease, had he passed the puck it's a sure goal. He had a guy on the back door with the net wide open. The angle I saw just now was from behind the net, though, so maybe his passing lane was blocked by Rinne
