I wasn’t able to watch this game really closely because of other stuff going on (how dare they!), but here are some of my impressions:

Liked:

  • Tyler Myers. Another strong game. He’s a keeper.
  • Ryan Miller. Made key saves when it counted.
  • Pat Kaleta. Good boy, Patty. Make ALL the teams afraid of you.
  • Last minute of the game. Calm, cool, and collected.
  • Hecht/Gaustad/Grier. LOVE LOVE LOVE this line.

Didn’t like:

  • Players talking to the refs. That’s what the coach and the captains are for. Memo to Derek Roy – the refs don’t like you already. Don’t  make it worse.
  • Little response after the Myers hit. I know the game was tied, yada yada yada, but there’s got to be something they can do.
  • Harry Neale. Sorry, I just don’t like him.
  • How many of the star players look sloppy. I’ve never seen Pominville have as much trouble controlling the puck as he is this season. Vanek didn’t play a strong game. Roy didn’t either.
  • Total lack of ability to win faceoffs. By my quick calculations Phoenix won 65% of the faceoffs. Not good, boys, not good.
