Lucic has been pretty physical all season long. Horton hasn't and at times he disappears but he's producing at an acceptable clip. I fear the best physical play we'll see out of Horton was his first year here.

I thought Lucic played like a man possessed after the bad pass midway in the second period. What I would like to see from him is to trust himself more when he's coming down the wing and go hard to the net. There's two plays Lucic likes to do when he's coming down the wing with a full head of steam: either take the puck behind the net or pass it back to the trailer. I'd like to see him set his edges, use his body to shield the puck, and go to the net.
