My three stars were:
3. Lundqvist - I don't care what anyone says. He had a great game, and he was the best PKer on the 5-on-3.
2. Gaborik - He was just everywhere tonight.
1. Callahan - He had a straight up excellent game all around.

1.Cally - somehow, a minus 1 tonight. Completely turned the game around.
2.Boyle - I'm usually critical of him, but he way laying some big hits, and got GWG. Good to see him using that big body of his.
3. Hank - say what you will. Best PK'ers on the ice were him and Cally.
We definitely need to find a way to gain offensive zone pressure consistently to allow our 3rd and 4th line to operate. The two lines grind and grind and the difference between grinding and scoring goals for those guys is so slight I feel. One extra play, a bit more space and time given to our 3rd and 4th line can really change the game like tonight. How to gain that offensive zone time (and not just board battles down low) is beyond me though.
