For sure he did. I remember numerous times the announcers were praising his speed and his ability to utilize it. He broke out on a couple rushes and made a couple good passes that led to scoring opportunities. Also, I remember him working really hard down low in the corners that game (all the games I watched for that matter) and winning puck battles. He used his body to get and protect the puck well. I think it's debatable to who could have got MVP, but the fact is Duchene worked hard all tournament, had 5 points and 4 games and made his presence on the ice known every shift. And that's 5 points with little to no power play time I believe?. Looked good on the PK too.
