82 shootouts = atleast 82 points, look at the brightside, the downside is that game 1 of the first round would never end,

Are they allowed to bandage their knuckles? Fewer bloody knuckles from hitting the helmet.

Perreault and Erat have great chemistry, Oates put Perry and Laich together for 4 on 4 OT.

I don't get this man and his OT pairings.

That OT goal Holtby lost track of the guy circling the net behind him.

Refs missed an obvious call that would have given us a PP to end regulation and sent it to the shootout.

Looked good for his first pre-season game. He's got a weird game for a centre, I hope the Caps can find a set of linemates with some chemistry.

Grabovski looks legit. Creative, hustling, moving. Pretty solid debut under the circumstances.

Lines one and three seem to be worth keeping together. Erat & Perreault can maybe do some damage in a reduced a soft minute scoring line role, leaving Laich at LW with Grabovski. Swap Brouwer & Wilson at RW between those two lines as performance dictates. Scrap lines altogether as performance dictates. It's a bit more versatile lineup and one that should give the coaching staff the option of being performaced-based when it comes to TOI. Kind of strange to perhaps not have a designated fourth line but it should put heat on lines/players.

Erat, Grabovski, Perreault all stood out today... which I guess is to be expected. Laich looked decent late. I realize Mitchell has no finish and never will, but I was impressed with how well he kept up with Erat and Perreault. Plays didn't die on his stick with them nearly as much as I thought they would.

Carrick was playing a high risk game, like a guy who knows he's not playing for an NHL job, he's just there to show what he can do. I enjoyed it.

Grabovski looks good for a big pay raise in Phoenix.

So lets talk about those OT forward pairings.

Erat and Perry doing work during regulation together so the obvious answer for OT is.... Perry + Laich!

Then Grabovski + Latta.

Then Erat + Wilson.

Erat-Grabovski-Wilson and Laich-Perreault-Brouwer saw some time in the 3rd period, so that's part of why the OT lines were different. Meaningless preseason game, why not see how different combos look?

Byers takes 17 minutes in penalties to Volpatti's seven yet still plays more (11:43 to 9:15). Latta (14:38) played more than Beagle (13:22) but Latta's PP time accounts for it.

Schmidt is coming along nicely. He reminds me of Morgan Rielly with his slick stickhandling.

Erat has looked good both next to Perreault and Grabovski. Then again, Perreault and Grabo play more of a similar game than people give them credit for.

Didn't see much chemistry from Laich or Brouwer with Grabovski.

Schmidt and Schilling continue to look really good, especially with the puck on their stick. Schmidt did have that awful turnover that almost led to a breakaway, but he had enough hustle to get back and stop Iginla. He obviously had no chance against Chara in the crease on his deflection goal, though.

Wey has been really disappointing this pre-season. Looks really outclassed a lot of the time. He's not awful in his own end, but he's been terrible with the puck and rarely seems on the same page as his partners (though being with Cajovsky can't be the best scenario for him).
