POTG: McDonagh. Played well in every facet of the game. Guy is a work horse. Love how he looks on the PP. About time to give him a more offensive role. And it's paid dividends this season.
I thought Richards, Cally and Hags all looked good in the game. I think Richards has bounced back from a few so-so performances to put together a few strong performances in a row. MZA continues to impress me by generating strong scoring chances every game.
And Talbot did what you expected. Wasn't challenged through the first two periods, in fact I thought Bob was stealing the show, and he didn't face too many grade A chances in the third, but he made timely saves when he had to, and once again only gave up two goals. You can't expect much more than that out of your back up.
That said, if Letestu didn't score on Bobrovsky, who was a rock in the game coming up with tons of clutch saves, this would be heading to OT.
Evenly played game. We got the better scoring chances, but sat back too much in the third. Definitely could have went to OT if Columbus had a little more luck.
I've been floored at the skill they've been showing lately. That first goal was just awesome. That whole second, the passing and the chances were amazing. Can someone tell me again how this team can't play an offensive style because of how untalented they are. This is without their most talented forward.
