Is it just me or does he look slow out there? I guess he has a deceptive stride.

I was really impressed in the first period. 20 shots has to be a long time high in shots for one period. Also the crowd while small, was pretty vocal. Last 1:30 of the game we were all standing and cheering. Good moment for the Caps. Makes me feel a little better.
quality shots?
1. one was a rebound at the doorstep, one was from the slot on the pp, one a loose puck in the slot, one was the goal, one was the two on one with Jagr, one of his 3rd period shots was on the doorstep. That's 6 and doesn't count the shot at the far top corner that he missed high.
I think 10 shots on goal when it taken some of our best players 6 games to get that many, quality or not is impessive.
when he flashed thru the entire thrashers pk squad he didn't look slow at all. what i also noticed was no hesitation what so ever. I have read where Bondra has told him not to think twice. Shoot the puck. Bondra was passing up chances to pass him the puck. I could see where that line could be dangerous every night.
