With a playmaker like Briere on the same line it is paramount that JVR realizes that because he is going to get a boat load of chances to bury goals down low. Briere is magical behind the net and if JVR just plants his big ole butt right in front of Brodeur he’s gonna get a lot of goals this series.
Best game of the year, now follow it up with another great Game 2!
This, though going wide on the wing is fine...
...if he is cutting hard to the net and trying to force the puck in. Then see above.
I also like his shot off the faceoff in the offensive zone. They like putting him there on that play and he has buried that a few times in big spots before.
If he puts it all together consistently and stays healthy, no question he is on Giroux's wing next year. They have some good chemistry and both of them going at once is unstoppable.
