Yakupov might be tied with Grigs and Kucherov in points, but he's not even close to playing as well as them right now (maybe too much pressure for him between his "superstar" billing, captaincy, and home ice?). Grigorenko put that team on his back today against the Swiss. Hate all you want, I guess, but he's having a very good tournament.

They still haven't given Grigorenko his assist on the game winner against Slovakia in OT. He won the faceoff and the puck went directly on defense.
