He, and the entire leadership group, stepped up with the Kings/Wings games then faded a bit but have been on their games for the past about four games. Weber didn't have to go into foolish beast mode, just get involved every shift and show some heart. The result is the opposition isn't scoring when he's on the ice and the team is producing better at even strength ... his +/- improved by six over the past few games ... he's getting points (including goals) 5on5 rather than only putting up numbers on the PP ... and all of that translates to winning three of the past four and making a contest out of the loss after a horrendous first few minutes against Colorado.

If only we'd seen this level of effort all season.
