Taylor Hall drives the play, Ales Hemsky drives the play. SS has learned to pick his spots and capitalize on great plays by others and to be in the right place at the right time.
bs. he scored because he was in the right place at the right time.... that's not a fluke. that's reading the play and timing one's arrival to the spot. Bernie Nichols was a master at this. Just always seemed to be there.
