- Drew Doughty made at least two Bobby Orr-style defenseman-in-the-crease goalie saves. Could also rebrand those Rob Scuderi - wins - a - cup saves (ask Detroit about).
Dustin Brown was great off the scoreboard. I know he scored. But he made several great passes that didn't convert.
Davis Drewiske, shot-blocking machine.
Willie Mitchell, upper-body injury that's not a head injury. That's bad/GOOD. Haven't heard any update on this, but I'm wondering what Jake Muzzin is going to buy with his frequent flyer miles.
Jonathan Bernier, quietly excellent.
Ryan Smyth, with his Magic Johnson no-look to Justin Williams in the previous game, and his goal (rebound/blue-paint) and non-assist assist (screen on Stoll goal), is playing the best I've seen him play since he left Edmonton.
- There was one shift, in particular, in the second period, when the Handzus line was terrifyingly good. A bunch of cycling and driving to the net and maybe three good shots. No goal, but that was a "Fro-who?" shift.
- Another four day break. I hate those.
