1st period (starting around half way through):
- Looked good on the first shift I saw, picked off a pass at his own blueline, then lead a rush that resulted in a scoring chance
- Nice 2nd shift too. Twice he recovered the puck in his own zone, and both times he successfully started the breakout with good passes. In the offensive zone he had a scoring chance getting to the puck first and getting a quick shot on net. His line seems to be playing at a quicker pace today, which is nice, possibly the Hansen influence
- Kurtis Foster takes a dumb penalty for Tappara. Barkov with a short PK shift, but makes a nice play, stripping the opposition in the neutral zone. Kalpa score off a rocket slapper top shelf later in the PK, after Barkov left the ice. 1-0 Kalpa
- Barkov takes a big hit, but is fine
You should watch #62 artturi lehkonen aswell from Kalpa.
