  • One of the very few games I can remember tracking where not a single Shark finished in the red in scoring chances. Obviously the Flames aren't a very good team as currently constructed but that's still a pretty impressive feat.
  • Ridiculous performance by Dan Boyle made all the more impressive by the fact that it wasn't even his best single-game shot differential total of the season. That came in a loss to the Blues when he was +32.
  • In case there was any doubt regarding how the coaching staff intends to deploy the team's top line, Joe Thornton and Brent Burns were on the ice together for 12 offensive-zone faceoffs and just one in their own end. After being moved onto that line, T.J. Galiardi certainly benefited from the sheltered minutes but played a great game in his own right.
  • Matt Tennyson understandably still has struggles with decision-making, particularly in the defensive zone, but he and Stuart were trusted to start in their own end more often than any other pairing last night and still finished in the black.
