There was only a faint Internet stream available for this game. It was the Columbus feed, and they are horrible. Some notes on this one: Christian Ehrhoff – Kris Letang Sign us up for this pairing. The best way to describe Ehrhoff is “calm.” He doesn’t seem to panic. Letang’s game is obviously to be everywhere, so it offsets. Interesting note in this game: Letang hit...
