What I like about his game is how he keeps his head up all the time, especially defensively. As the Russians carry the puck in the zone, Reinhart is scanning the ice and seems to be in position to make a play all the time. He often opts for the safe play, the smart play. He uses his body well but seems to lack strength on his feet.

Contrast that to Ryan Murray who seems to have all his man-strength. Very low centre of gravity, seemingly solid lower body, kind of a bull-dog out there.
I think that is nitpicking him a bit. I saw the falls but I would just call them early jitters. He seemed to need to adjust to the speed of the Russian forwards. Has been on point since imo. Doesn't look easy to knock him off the puck or shake him up at all.
