- Austin Czarnik scored a penalty shot and later dished to Teddy Purcell for a snipe. Anton Khudobin went the distance in net. Patriot Ledger
- Torey Krug left the game early with injury, as did Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson. Sean Kuraly took issue with a pair of Wings, and an otherwise sharp Purcell finds himself at the back of the line behind many talented youngsters.

- Agonizing quandaries are exactly what Bruce Cassidy is hoping for in his roster decisions. WEEI
