It was kind of the opposite. People were either yelling at him to make the decision to shoot, or yelling at him to hit the net more when he did.

He looked really fired up at lots of times during the game. He had a hit where I couldn't believe how fast he traversed the beeline he was on. There were other times too.

But it's just such a frustrating year. The goal is nice, but watching players look promising like that always seems like they're "waking up" but then it never lasts. Briere's first 5 or 6 games were like that. He was actually ripping it up in board battles. And it just never paid off.
