Scrappy period for the pack, saved a penalty shot but lowell seem to control the play after that got a 5-3 power play and scored 2 to level it up. No1 stood out at all the period its pretty much been all one way traffic.
Jessiman had such a nice pass to Purinton, it was a 3-2 coming into the zone on the right hand side a defender came towards him and he used his reach to like 1 hand pass it behind the D into a Purinton SKATING AT FULL SPEED (5 mph) who was under pressure flicked at it first time from the slot and went just wide on the left.
BTW the 3 A's tonight are: Grenier, Weller, Giroux
Pack lose, they were up 2-0 all under control then in the seconds period it all changed and they never got the momentum back, unlucky with 2 of the goals,
Giroux played awful tonight, he seemed to be floating and was getting hit and losing his battles against the board. No shots sloppy passes.
Baranka when he was on was playing smart in his zone a few nice shots on the point drew a penalty, great at starting the rush either smart pass or skating it up.
Immonen was a little quiet but still got a great goal and Assisted on a Short hand goal, nice passes won a few battles but wasnt really that visible.
Jessiman - He keeps getting better game by game, had a couple of shots used his body well hustles, i'd like him to set himself for the shot more, 1 good hit. Got up pretty much straight away when he slide into the boards with someone getting hit in the face.
Dawes is alittle unlucky, he is getting some chances but they are just not clean cut ones, and its bobbles wide or deflect off the keeper, good forechecking though.
Federov - Good on the power play playing the point great on the puck his moves worked better this game i thought he deked the goalie but went to roof it and went wide, Assisted on Immonens goal. 2 good defensive plays, nice passing on the powerplay he kept setting Rullier for the shot, but i'd rather he was shooting it, Like Jagr as his shot is so much more snappier.
