Hornqvist was able to get there quicker because he's already heading the right way. Just how I saw that one play. Now I missed a good chunk of the game so I can't say how his play was throughout the rest of the game. He did seem a bit aggressive though earlier in the period. I was thinking we were going to see another Zetterburg moment.
He was a bit aggressive earlier in the period because some Hawk (can't remember who) took him down in the corner while they were both going for the puck and it pissed him off. Lately Shea only releases the beast if another player pisses him off personally...like when he thought an opposing player high-sticked him a few weeks ago (even though it was really Erat) and he proceeded to obliterate two people. But he doesn't show the same mean streak if a game is going poorly in general; only if someone makes him personally angry. It's kind of annoying actually. He's so amazing when he's mad, but he rarely actually plays that way.

+1 to praising Horny for getting to that puck. What a beast. Most inspiring thing I saw all day.
