That is Kadri diving for the puck. Then at the other end he earns a goal. Good offense starts with good defense, and I think Kadri has improved mostly in that area which now make him a complete player.
Keep the kid humble, but don't take away his confidence -- and you got yourself a very special player.
While it's great to see two Leafs players sacrificing their bodies to block shots in that video. What still stands out the most to me in that sequence is the play of Kulemin. That is one hell of a shift.
"Along for the ride" indeed.
