The whole team played fabulous. Besides that last breakdown that lead to the 2nd Ottawa goal, the game was ours, especially after the timeout. We controlled the game. Ottawa's first goal was just an awesome set up. Blame some of the D for not picking up Alfie, but that was a hell of a deflection. That second goal, ehhh... Whatever.
If they can play like they did in the second for most of the playoffs, they can give any team a run.

Staal played his best defensive game this season. Flawless, in my opinion. Didn't shy away from anything.
He was probably our best Dman tonight. Except for the last goal, where he overpursued the puck carrier instead of collapsing on the far left side. You got to let the wing or center take the man entering the zone.
