He has been fantastic this season. Howevever, I think most of his success can be attributed to Kessel.
I noticed this too on the first 5-on-3 rob by Miller - he should have one-timed it, and it would have gone in for sure, but some guys need to stop it first - not sure why, thought it was because he needed that extra time to roof it, but when he scored on the second attempt, he did the same thing; and it stayed low - if Miller was in position, he would have robbed him again.

I think Andreychuck used to do this too, but he had crazy hands and could roof a backhand in a phone booth.
