One good line—Hagman plus-two, Mitchell plus-two, Grabovski plus-one (surprising to see positive plus-minus in a 7-3 loss).
One good goalie: The Pogge stopped 13 out of 14 shots
One very-improved stat—faceoffs. Steen 62 percent, Stajan 83 percent, Grabovksi 53 percent (this is progress).
One power-play goal allowed on eight chances—including 1:11 down two men.
No goals on six power-play chances, including 1:41 with a two-man advantage—hello?
Frogren and Mayers both minus-three on the night. Eight hits by the two of them don't make up for that.
Six blocked shots? That's it?
Cujo's save percentage of 50 percent. That's a lotta rust!
10 players without a single hits. That's not team toughness.
Robbie Earl spent 3:33 on the ice—enough to get to a minus-two on the night. Hello, Marlies!
Seven penalties for Ryan Hollweg, including two boarding calls. Is this guy going to be more trouble than he's worth?
