Matt Smaby played just 4:43 of even hockey with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot. Mike Lundin was -2 in 12:04 and his streak of perfection is over: he actually threw his first NHL hit. Kidding aside, I think was the first game where Lundin's lack of upper body strength and size really was an issue.

Mathieu Darche was even in 9:33 with 2 shots and 1 hit.
