Cam Ward was right to be peeved with the Versus announcers, who mentioned he had not yet allowed a goal during a first-period conversatioin with him. Not two minutes later, Team Lidstrom's Anze Kopitar ended the shutout run with a sweet goal that saw him go top shelf after breaking in alone on Ward.
Team Staal is still dominating though, leading 4-1. Chicago's Patrick Sharp already has three assists.
Needless to say, I didn't see this coming. In my post-draft analysis, I said Team Lidstrom had clear advantages in goal, on defense and at two of the three forward positions. But, it's early and I still believe in the depth of Team Lidstrom. We'll see how smart I am in about two hours.
