Basically like guarding someone in basketball without getting your hands up to make it harder.

Think he was on the ice for the goal after the 5 on 3 PP too. If I remember correctly, he was paired with Curry

Still, it was his first game. I can away impressed and think he will be a definite bright spot next year. Phantoms scored 2 power play goals in one game, which is noteable considering how bad the man advantage has been this year. Gives me hope that we can get rid of our "veterans" on defense. If I have to endure another year of Curry playing awful defense and passing the puck in front of his own net 3 times a game, I'm not sure how many games I'll actually attend.
I was listening during that part. The Lehtivouri-Mormina pairing was out there, cause they went the whole 2:00 mins on the 5 on 3. Gustaffson was only a -1 for when they scored the first goal.

I am interested though. I do hope they get rid of those older guys. I heard actually good things about Stephenson. Even though I dont think he is in our plans, having a guy that can play solid defense is good for puckmoving d-men.

Oh and thanks for the info
