There is better PK unit, it's with Klein and O'Brien out there. I know Weber and Suter get all the hype but for the most part, Klein and O'Brien usually start the PK against the other teams top PP unit. That's what I've noticed anyway. Suter and Weber get minutes as well but Klein gets the most PK time of any defenseman we have.
I also have to say, the kid takes a puck to the face, gets up, skates off the ice and if I'm not mistaken doesn't miss a shift. He does this any time I see him go down. He's gone crashing into the boards and it looks like he's busted an ankle only to be back up and out there for his next shift. One of the toughest and most dedicated team players we've got. When you see someone do that on a regular basis, I tend to give a little bit more credence to his overall play and can oversee some of his shortcomings on occasion. He gets bashed way too much around here but I'll tell you this, he and Legwand will play hurt or after getting injured more than most guys will do. Have to love their hearts and their commitment to the team.
Great game tonight by the boys. Gonna save that one on the DVR for a little while and enjoy it.
