How many times did Anaheim get a two-on-one in that game? 5-6?
Don't mind them, they haven't re-assessed their evaluations from last season. And even then, he was pretty good at backchecking.

I think the injury to Wolski hit the nail on the head, Zuccarello was supposed to play with Fedotenko and Stepan/ Wolski. That injury screwed up the lines. Zuke got the short end of the stick. Let's see what happens when Wolski is back. I do hope a team like Detroit could get their hands on him, he would be much better utilized there then he will ever be in New York. Systematic, untalented grinding takes its toll on players that want creativity.
