Could talk about the goals, but let's talk about something more worrying. Tomas Plekanec is injured and won't return tonight. The speculation is that it's a groin injury. Since he was clearly hurt in the first, and played a bit over 3 minutes since then, I'm going to assume it's relatively minor.

Don't freak out. Lars Eller will now get his chance to shine, while Galchenyuk will take over the 3rd line C duties. This team has depth.
