I only managed to catch the highlights of this game - how did we play? Did anyone stand out? Also how did Getzlaf look and did Allen look alright after missing 5 games with the flu?
Allen stood out times for me. The frst one was when he got beaten 1 on 1 on that goal which was called off. The second time, i noticed him defending Etem in front of the net when Wild players were seeking revenge on Perry hit.
I hope he gets better, but i wouldn`t call him horrible either.
Cogs and Etem looks very nice on PK
We sucked for 2 periods and used some black magic or something to come up with a win in a regulation.
A lot of our players were worned out on PK.
Teemu, however, looked very bad. A lot of mistakes even in a very good opportunities. He needs to sit some games, imo. He`s 42, it`s obvious he would need more rest than others. That kind of play, making mistakes, more often than not also leads to injuries.
Allen had a strong game. 6 blocked shots and no egregious bonehead plays I can remember. Getzlaf looked good but seemed tired, he was busting his ass on the PK and I think it wore him down. Cogliano with another strong game - someone said it somewhere else that he and Etem make for a very dangerous pair on the PK, they had a lot of offensive zone time on the 5 minute kill.
