This performance lost to Lysacek by less than a point. Savoie beat Lysacek in TES and Transitions and tied in Skating Skills. But Evan pulled out the win by getting higher scores in CH, INT and P&E. Matt clobbered Weir by more than 8 points in TES and was a bit ahead in PCS as well.

True, his program was slow. Like a steak nursed to perfection over a low fire, rather than tossed into the barbecue pit to be fished out two seconds later burnt on the outside and raw on the inside.
