I think it was in the first. He gets the puck in the slot, with no carolina player around him, and immediately looks for someone to pass to instead of taking a shot.
I'm thinking that was one of the things that coach T was upset about leading to JPs benching.
I'll look for it.
The one thing we tend to forget about JP is that he's been primarily a setup guy in Nashville. His best numbers here came with a healthy Sullivan and Arnott on his line ... pass to Arnott as he camped in the left circle, get the assist. His goals came from being the second or third goal scoring threat on the line, not the primary guy. This season he doesn't have those type linemates, yet he still seems to revert to that look for the pass rather than shoot mentality.
