And Kruger far and away lead the Hawks in faceoffs taken. Obviously he needs to get better, but he was going up against some of the best centremen in the league all playoffs, especially on the PK. M.Koivu, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Kopitar, Richards, Bergeron, etc. It's not as if he was going up against scrubs and losing draw after draw.
