We're going to try out a few different recap ideas to see what works and what doesn't. Tonight we'll try to discuss on the ups and downs of the game. Let me know what you think, and please feel free to weigh in on absolutely anything you picked up or what you wanted from the game.
- Petr Kalus getting on the scoreboard
- A fast start. Outstanding to see.
- 5/5 on the PK. 2/7 on the PP. I think we'll take those special teams numbers all season long.
- Reitz being out of position, directly leading to two Chicago goals. He's going to have to improve in a hurry, or he'll be on a trip to Houston.
- A complete lack of offense in the third period. Everyone vanished. Disappointing.
- Where was Colton Gillies?
