Huberdeau? did an awesome job of pausing to let Kari slide out of the way. Pretty damn smart and patient move.

Why was Oleksiak all the way up at the blue line?

Also, our special teams are not so quietly regressing back to the mean.

Very prissy Euro move from Lindell to not even try to push Huberdeau away from the crease there.

Imagine this team if Radulov chose to stay in Montreal.

Benn would have to go back to leeching off of Seguin.

I wasn’t sure if the Blake Sloan comparison was a compliment.

And he actually scores. Haha.

My favorite part of Benn’s second goal was Luongo staring at his d-men like it was their fault he sent a no look pass to a forechecker.

In all seriousness though, we need at least 3 more goals, because you know the 3rd period is Kari time.

Still 7, because we weren't trailing at that point, we were tied

They were trailing 2-1 before the goal was scored, thus it became the eighth even-strength goal they've scored while trailing this season.

The book on Kari is to outshoot your opponent 20-1 and hope that that one shot doesn't go in.

Kindof. We're actually getting league-average goaltending and our defense is improved, but our offense has taken a huge hit because of it. So it balances out.

Basically exactly what we should've expected when Hitch was hired.

Leave it to the Stars to make Lulongo look like a world beater. I suppose a point is better than no point.

At least we are getting owned by starting goalies this year instead of backup goalies. That's a marginal improvement.

From a casual observation it seems like there are a lot fewer breakaways and odd man rushes for the opponents.
I never really liked Ruff’s system of having the defense join the rush so frequently, because it rarely seemed to pay off and often led to defensive breakdowns. But without the breakdowns this year the team just looks so average. Better than before but still not better than average.

Klingberg looks a lot better out there, though. He used to be a real mess at times.
