So, you aren’t all the time 100% certain of what you’re seeing.

With that reservation out of the best way, some fast notes on what we noticed from the visiting facet:


CALVIN PICKARD. Pickard stopped 25 of 30, wanting fairly good early. One in every of his greatest was a wonderful seize off Kyle Connor within the 1st. Flashed leather-based once more on a Gustavoson shot within the 2nd. However he left to his personal units too typically late. Did handle to thwart a partial breakaway within the third Interval regardless that the sport was properly out of attain by then.

BRAD MALONE. A strong veteran efficiency. I famous optimistic contributions in all 3 intervals, and in all 3 zones. A 3rd Interval steal was transformed into an odd man rush within the 3rd. You’ll be able to simply see how he’s able to contributing at an NHL degree.

ADAM ERNE. Erne seemed very efficient early in a line with Malone and Lavoie, which had me pondering this man might be a discover. His motor was actually operating. However I seen him much less as the sport wore on.
