Holmstrom - Minus given (turned puck over, changed before goal was scored)
Rafalski and Cleary - No minus given (both in position)
Zetterberg - Extra half-minus (failure to prevent shot on net, puck deflected off stick and in)
Ericsson - Extra minus (slow to react to rush in a way that could prevent a pass to a good scoring chance.)

Penalty Adjustments (not already counted in goals scored):

1st Period 6:29 - Ryane Clowe (interference): Datsyuk hits everything in site, causing Clowe's inner donkey to come out.  Half-plus for Datsyuk
1st Period 16:07 - Kris Draper (roughing): stupid play to get the hands up unnecessarily.  Minus for Draper.
3rd Period 6:22 - Jiri Hudler (hooking): Bad stickwork after bobbling a puck to kill a good cycle.  Minus for Hudler
Overtime 5:11 - Devin Setoguchi (holding): Drawn by a very good Bertuzzi play.  Bertuzzi gets a plus.

Bonus Ratings

+1 Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg:  The three players consistently doing good work.
-1 Ericsson: One bad turnover, another bad near-turnover, and not enough of using both body and stick effectively.
-0.5 Rafalski: When you have as many hits on your own defensive partner as on the other team, you haven't had a good game.
+0.5 Helm: Good penalty killing prevented a bad PK from being worse.

Programming note: I'm out-of-pocket Friday.  I'll be catching the game on DVR late.  CSSI for that game will be delayed until at least Sunday.
