I agree. Khokhlachev has been flying all over the ice, diving to block shots (with his face if necessary). He is primed to have a great series, but being on a line with Yakupov, he rarely has the chance to touch the puck. He has been driving to the net, which can be suicidal for a little guy, only to watch Yakupov hog the puck, dance around with fancy maneuvers, ultimately creating a turnover that goes back the other way. That has to be frustrating for a team player who makes his living on beautiful combinational plays. If anything, Koko could only be criticized for skating so fast that he sometimes has difficulty controlling the puck in close to the net.
