Confidence is still a big issue with him. Last night he had a great first couple shifts, forchecked hard, caused turnovers and backchecked, then took that double minor and his confidence was just shot to hell for the rest of the game. The puck must have slipped off his stick every time he touched it. (I also believe his second penalty was complete BS- on the replay you can clearly see the Bruin player trap Perezhogins stick between his arm and his body. Ive seen that a ton this year, and almost always the hook is called. Some may call it a savvy play to draw a penalty, I thinks its cheating and bush league)
Back to the thread, save for a couple games this year, I agree Alex has been pretty solid. The way he wins battles along the boards is just amazing. He's also easily the fastest player on this team.
exactly what I was about to post. He played terrible last night!
