He also made a few really high quality stretch passes, his saucer pass back to the point was working well, it's too bad he couldn't get on the score sheet. He had a much better game tonight IMO.
Pretty much this.
Broissot absolutely robbed him on Russia's 5 on 3 power play in the first and I think he buries the chance Groucho is talking about in the third 7/10 times.
What impressed me the most, aside from the very tenacious forecheck that lead to the 4th goal, is the speed at which he distributes the puck and gets his shot off in a cycle. He is going to be a nightmare for NHL penalty killers.
