Allen stood out a couple of times in a bad way, but I love his tenacity. As much as I loved Vatanen's play tonight, if Lydman is in the lineup it's to replace Vatanen, not to give us a small blueline again.
All that talk about Sami and I thought I'd just have my hopes up. That kid can play. He's excellent at passing the puck. It showed tonight. I hope to see him in the lineup again. I love Lydman but Vatanen seemed to really push the pace out there. And on top of that it seemed like Sbisa was playing better tonight with him.
