I actually thought last night was Brad's best game of the series, though still far from what we consistently need from him. One thing I noticed is that he often manages to get himself into good position to make a play by finding a soft spot in coverage, but he's indecisive once he gets the puck and when pressured either turns it over or treats it like a live grenade. Last night on the PP at least he was decisive, firing away from the point before the defenders had a chance to adjust and creating a lot of havoc in front of Hotlby, which was awesome. Seems like he still knows where he needs to be on the ice to get scoring chances so I think if he keeps shooting and gets paired with a winger that crashes the net (like Zuccarello did when they went on their hot streak in April), he might be a more consistent threat out there.
