Me either, I was just curious if anyone noticed an influx of newer non-regulars in tonight's game. I think it'd have been really cool if that was a lot of "on the fence about hockey" fans' first game tonight. Perfect game to hook new fans.
Watching the game again on DVR, Benn really had such a magnificent game. Maybe its just the Ducks horrid defense, but I think we take his skating and puck handling for granted sometimes. His ability to weave across the blue line and draw defenders onto him is amazing. If he ever figures out how to be a bonafide play-maker in his career, watch out.
Bachman had a under-rated game in my opinion. Besides the Temmu goal, he didn't have a chance on the others. He was solid tonight! I'm much more confident with Bachs in nets then Raycroft and I think the team feels the same way.
