Didn't back down or shy away from contact or the rough stuff. Thats the type of spark this team has lacked.

He's in it now, he's found his NHL game. Just needs to sustain it and play that game consistently and build on it. He's got the size, speed and skill to be a nice power forward.

I also noticed a discernible difference in the way he spoke to the media, the other day. He sounded much more confident, and less like a timid mouse. That is a direct reflection of his confidence, and his maturity. He's getting there....
