- Brian Pothier needs to stop gracing the press box with his presence. That was a beautiful pass to Semin for goal number one.
- Brendan Morrison seemed to everything right but score a goal. He was really flying around, and seems to be at 100%.
- Knuble looked very good with the first powerplay unit when he was given the opportunity, offering a "big time screen" and net presence according to Beninati.
Three bullets...that's weak. Back to the drawing board. Bruce needs to fire up his team if they want to take a point out of Detroit on Saturday...they won't do it with another effort like that.
