Mark MakuchCorrespondent ISeptember 22, 2008

Positives:

23 blocked shots (11 for Buffalo).

Four blocked shots by Jeff Finger (that's what he's here for, people!).

One giveaway not by a goalie.

Five hits by Ryan Hollweg.

Three hits by Jason Blake, who was also a plus-three on the night—this guy needs to be feisty to be effective.

No goals allowed on 15 shots in the second by Justin Pogge.

One short-handed goal by Dominic Moore, who also won 73 percent on face offs.

Five even-strength goals.

 

Negatives:

Kulemin was a minus-one and took no shots

Stajan only won 38 percent of his faceoffs.

Only three for seven on the PK.
