As good as knowing where Andrei was and making that touch pass were, watching him read the play and moving out from the crease into the open space and drawing the checker towards him was even better IMO. Simply perfect, the goal may not get scored if he doesn't do that. The movement opens him up for the pass, helps him link up the play to get the puck to the net in a controlled manner for AK and also draws the one person who might be able to defend the play away from the net, giving Andrei the time and space to make that move. Exceptional stuff from little brother
As for the finish, Andrei scored pretty much that exact same goal against Brodeur for the Habs a bit over a month ago. Only difference was Marty went for the poke check when Andrei received the puck but AK spun away from it to slide it in. Otherwise, same position, same finish.
