Nurse looking so much better and more confident than in Game 1. Good to see.
It's nice to see some competent goaltending. The save percentage in the first 2 games of this tournament was 0.813.
Did anybody notice who it was who came all the way back in the zone to check the Vancouver player who picked Pallazesse's pocket? Marco Roy is the correct answer. I read a scouting report on him from before the draft, and he is considered an excellent defensive player in the Q. I guess his coach really emphasizes the 2 way game.
Betker looks like a better prospect than Musil, although he did fumble one puck in his own end, and whiffed on a check at the blueline. Pretty solid prospect for where he was picked.
Roy also drew a penalty and dished out a hard hit. A Jack of all trades. Betker also iced the puck, but he has some solid tools for sure. IMO he could be a real steal although I'd like to see him playing more physical.

Yup, pretty much agree on what's been said so far. We're getting much better goaltending tonight, great rebound control. Nurse looks better, amazing skater. I really like Davidson, so calm and collected. The lack of skill up front really shows, outside the first line at times, none of the lines can keep any longer pressure in the offensive zone.
Kessy looks like he might turn into an ok 4th liner/13th forward, hopefully he can learn to PK properly.
Our PP and PK has been pretty horrible so far this tourny btw.
Cam Abney is just plain bad.
