-Huet was well positioned, didnít face to many dangerous shots but made the big ones when needed, his confidence level was the highest itís been this season IMO.
-Perezoghin besides a stupid penalty had a great game causing turnovers forechecking using the body winning battles in the corner, Kovalev played good aswell controlled the puck well passing the puck trying to make things happen in the Offensive zone while maintaining a strong defensive game, Samsonov was using his speed driving the puck from the D zone up to the O zone making some nice passes, Perez Sams and Kovy are playing some sound hockey and they had some good opportunityís but just didnít capitalize or get a lucky bounce.
-Lats had a good game, IMO not as good as his game vs the Sens his speed got exposes a little against some of the Canes fast forwards and still taking the longest shifts then any other Hab but Carb played him properly when needed replaced Begin on the wing for defensive reasons, but still worked the corners well using the body trying to make things happen, but yeah Lats did well with Bonk and Johnson I think itís just a matter of time until Lats puts a point up there, they seem to be trying to help the kid get on the score sheet good sign of team work and respect amongst the players.
-I didnít catch the first 5 minutes so I donít know if Saku and Williams spoke but I didnít see anything done to Williams, nothing noticeable anyways.
Regarding youíre last question, as the 2nd period grew longer you seen that fatigue start to kick in, by the 3rd period they didnít seem to have enough gas left in the tank to rebound but I feel if the Canes could of taken advantage of there opportunityís and capitalized on the 5 on 3 it might have been a different game, after Saks goal the team seemed deflated, on the Johnson goal it just seemed like sloppy coverage on the Canes part since Johnson and Bonk were coming off a shift ready to hit the bench.
Good point, since we won this game 4-0, our top line should get no more than 10 even strength minutes a game.
Well if you count two disallowed goals Koivu would've had a hatrick Seriously though, maybe there's other reasons Koivu and Ryder got less time, like giving the second line more time to get accustomed to each other.
Speaking of Pleks, wow, solid back to back games.. sort of unfair for him to be tuck on the 4th.
His being "stuck" on the 4th line has a lot to do with those solid back to back games. It's no coincidence he's loosened up considerably and done so well once moved away from the pressure of the 2nd line.
