DH has a ton of belief in Hendricks...he was a 4th line energy player under BB but under DH he is a shutdown 3rd liner who has seen his ice time pretty much double.

9 for 9 on face offs last game??? 12-5 the game before? Leading the NHL in hits this playoffs?

Guys like Beagle and Hendricks are really ramping up their play as their coach has a great deal of belief in them.
I think it was during one of the post game press conferences, Dale Hunter was asked and I believe it was Katie Carrera who asked it, but he was asked which current Capital player reminded Hunter of the way he played the game. I didn't hear Hunter's response, but I'd say in this series it would have to be Hendricks.
