Buff looks great tonight. Really one of the best parts of the game.
Yeah, he gave up the early 2 on 1 that Toby had to clean up, but other than that, he has looked great. Enström has also been good, foremost in the defensive zone. He has stopped Spezza on several occasions.
The D is struggling as suspected but sometimes they look worse than my high school team's dmen. She's a sloppy one, but I have a feeling we'll come back to tie it in the third and get at least one point.
Buff is looking great out there. Enstrom needs to shoot the puck a little more. Top line did not look great this period.
I've been saying this about Enstrom since his first season. He has a rocket of a shot, but he seems very hesitant to shot. He played his best hockey paired with Bogosian, who seemed more willing to pass Enstrom the puck rather than shoot a la Buff.
After all the concern I've voiced about Buff, he's looking like the best player on the ice tonight.
Scheifele is playing exactly as expected...flashes of talent, but not yet ready for prime time...of course, neither are Clitsome or Stuart. Postma gets a longer leash cuz he's a newbie.
Hope the 3rd line gets some points....they deserve it.
