Thoughts on final training camp scrimmage

-- Marian Hossa looks great alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Tomas Holmstrom. Hossa gave his team a lead in the third period when he streaked down the left side and beat goalie Tomas McCollum with a snap shot over the glove. Later in the period, Hossa looked tied up by defenseman Jonathan Ericsson, but drew the puck back and got a shot off.

-- McCollum had the last laugh, stopping both Hossa and Datsyuk in the shootout. Not a bad performance by an 18-year-old.

-- Ville Leino is good defensively. He made several strong plays, including knocking the puck away as the last man back in the third period of a tie game. Oh, he was also marvelous in the shootout, going wide and lifting a shot high over the goalie.
