I couldn't watch the game, so I watched some of the goal videos at NHL.com.

On the Karlsson goal, Florida is carrying the puck out, some Sens skaters are backing up to defend. Karlsson reads the pass, slows up, and picks it off. He has to wait for the last Senator to leave the zone -- who is that -- #3 Marc Methot? Eric made a risky play to intercept while Marc was recovering from being down low in the offensive zone.

This shows what I love about Maclean's coaching. He's anti-Hitchcock. He's not Tortorella. He doesn't tear a strip off of players or bench them for making a risky play. He encourages creativity and aggressive puck-pursuit and skating.
