I went with Datsyuk, Z and Kronwall. Kronwall cause it was a bomb and the GWG.
I do not know why people vote for Bullin. He did not make any big saves. It was an easy game for both goalies. The lone big save and the toughest one of the game was made by Howard. Howard was better than Bullin in this game.

Up front Datsyuk was great both ways, 80% on def zone faceoffs! (Hank was 17%...) Franzen made good plays in front on both goals and Brunner should have actually had 2 A's. Bottom-6 played a solid game too.
Howard had a couple of great saves, like the one on Schultz in the 2nd(?). I believe he'll be starting tomorrow as well.
Kinld looked confident to me. I was pleasently surprised.

They seem they always have some young good players, but seems to me they can't develop them.

Meh, not a big fan of either of them. They're not bad, but they're not good, either.
I too think it was an important win for Howard. Hope he builds on on it.

If I remember right Ericsson used to be the whipping boy on this board. When Holland signed him to the contract, people went mad here. Seems like it was a good deal for Detroit.

I think you missed the replay of the save on Brunner. I was watching the CBC feed (as I like a national perspective from time to time), so maybe they didn't show it on FSN. But that was a great save.
