Smyth opens space for him and give Kopitar space and he is one of the best. Did you notice how much he was getting double teamed and bumped?
I don't know Zad, I got to go with bland on this one. Kopi was dogging it, but he wasn't the only one.

He has used his speed at all lately. He has jets, but he isn't using them to beat guys to inside position, boht defensively and offensively.

Also, maybe someone who watched all the replays on tv can correct me, but the linesmen looks awful to me, as well as the refs. Most of the calls were weak, and a lot of boarding, interference and holding went uncalled.
