2-for-2 in the face-off circle. Both were taken on the PP. The second one was taken by Gally due to Sarault being tossed from the circle.
Sloppy start to the game on both sides. Galchenyuk looked good, stick-handling well and passing it off at the appropriate times. He got a few shots on net but nothing too dangerous. He made a very nice no-look, between the legs pass to Boucher in the slot while on the PP. Also had a great chance while on the PK when he took a shot and gathered his own rebound, only to hit the cross-bar. Defensively, he's been a little slow on his skates and drifting behind the puck carrier often. However, Guelph is playing awful right now so it's not even a noticeable flaw.
