Nobody from the Canes really stood out, he was probably better than all of them. On the Sens it's between him and Smith. Smith was awesome and a beast, but missed some scoring chances and Karlsson's skill level is on a whole other level. Smith can't control the game like Karlsson. What I like about Karlsson is his escapability in the defensive zone. He just grabs the puck and takes a couple of steps to find open ice. Then he slows it down, or keeps going full tilt at which point nobody can take it away from him in the neutral zone. Nobody else can do that on the Sens.
In other news, Filatov was awesome. He's an NHLer if he wants to be, plain and simple.
