Mark MakuchCorrespondent ISeptember 26, 2008

The Weak

Five blocked shots—not nearly enough.

One shorthanded goal against. Ouch.

Five players with two or more hits, versus nine for the Pens.

33-percent success rate on face offs for Grabovski, which needs to improve.

Two periods missing in action.


The Gritty

One great goal from Grabovski, going strong to the net in the dying seconds.  As Borat would say: "Vary nayce!"

Five hits by Frogren.

Four hits by Blake.

17 third-period shots.
