It's a bit of gamble to rely on a player who has been in the league for so long and has had minimal playoff experience. I think he's still feeling his way out there. 16 shot attempts in Game 1, but only 8 SOG - seems like he may be gripping the stick too tightly. But nerves or not, he was brought here to score goals in situations like Game 1 and 2 where the team is struggling to score, and he hasn't - a definite disappointment in that regard.

He has yet to prove that he can deliver in a big game in the playoffs. I'm not writing him off, but he needs to figure it out quickly because the team is two games away from being eliminated.
