We played a very good game, tactically great and very methodical and simple game. By the 3rd period it felt like we had the upper hand. The puck just didn't go in. We either missed the net, shot it right at Niemi, or tried one pass too many and it got broken. Suck losing in shootout as that is one 'free' point we lost out on. Atleast it's to a team in the other conference.
Defense was great. Smith's best game of the season, maybe pairing him with Quincey is the problem. Now if he could just put the puck into the net it'd be great. Oullet looked fantastic for his first game, confident and strong. Threw the puck away a bit carelessly a couple of times but atleast not in dangerous positions. Dekeyser just gets better and handled the extra responsibility very well. He's one of those guys that never seems to disappoint.
