Nice play by Jagr on the goal to draw 2 defenders and get the puck to Ryder with a nice screen in front by Olesz.
I hope Fayne doesn't get scratched now just because he was on for 2 goals against. He wasn't the only one who made a mistake on the CBJ PPG, bad penalty by Jagr too who otherwise had a nice game. That bounce was really fortuitous for CBJ. Nothing he could do on the 3rd CBJ goal after that crazy pass by Harrold set up CBJ perfectly. It's a shame since Fayne had some nice pinches and keep-ins in the offensive zone. Sad to read that DeBoer actually defended Harrold in the post game. You just know Fayne is out for Larsson rather than Harrold out now.
Not his fault at all but there goes any hope of Schneider getting the next game. Besides Jagr, Ryder was the only other forward who seemed to do much. Nice to see Volchenkov take a big hit and respond with one of his own. Tedenby had some nice shifts early on but really seemed to fade away, though in fairness to him, so did most of the team. Still I don't think he's showing enough to warrant staying on the roster when they need to make a move. Brunner was invisible again. Another rough game for Loktionov, no shots and he continued to struggle in faceoffs (2/10). Zajac, Gionta, and Zubrus were actually decent in the circle tonight.
Salvador didn't play at all in the 3rd, I guess his hip acted up.
RIP Pat Burns -- RIP Alexander Vasyunov and Lokomotiv Yaroslavl
