I saw the game again last night, and I gotta say that Jeff Halpern played really well.
He is extremely focused on doin the right thin out there for his line. He had a shift in the 2nd period that I would record and use as a instruction video if I were a coach. He had stayed back in the neutral zone but when a lightning player got a bad pass he stepped up with great determination and had the forward whack the puck of Halperns legs so that it went into the lightnings zone Halpern chased it down, and had a somewhat decent opertunity to pick it up and try to go around the D. Instead he focused 100% on just getting it around the boards to Powe who was heading up ice on the opposite side of the ice. It was so obvious that Halpern only had one thing in his mind: get the puck up ice and keep it there.
And he is flying out there. Stepan and Miller beware!
