McCarron has been awesome. On his first shift he backchecked really hard, covering a lot of ground very quickly. He's been a regular on the PP and has done pretty much everything but score. He drove hard to the net from corner and got robbed. After the faceoff he went right to the net with the puck and then dangled around two defenders but unfortunately lost the handle at the last second. On his next shift he had a nice rush, showing off his skating ability and quick hands. Later that same shift he stole the puck in the neutral zone to set up a 2-on-1. He used his hands to obtain space and then fired a pass to Cammarata who went for the wraparound and scored. I noticed that McCarron really likes to use his slapshot, I think he took three of them.
Lehkonen has been invisible, along with linemate Teravainen. Kapanen has been fairly good though. They've been shut down by the Cammarata-Shore-McCarron line. Lehkonen was fairly active in his own zone.
i"m surprised he's this skilled. Never thought he'd be dangling anyone. Throw in the fact that he can skate and I'm starting to wonder why he didn't go higher.
Thanks as always for your reports, That!!!
