Zharkov was actually more impressive yesterday. He was pretty relentless on the puck and showed off some nice skills.
He has played fine, as others have mentioned with 2 players covering him at all time. The thign you are right about is that he has bumbled the puck a lot. Quite a few times he just lost the puck. Not sure if he is trying to hard or what. He needs to slow down a bit I think.
