3. Pock and Rachunek played DECENT, despite the Rachunek blunder.
Honestly, Aron Ward isn't as good defensively. He is more Physical then anything. I would definitley look to play Lampman next to Rachunek considering he is suppose to be a pretty solid stay- at home d-men. I was at the game and my God did Rachunek leave pock in a abd position all night. Pock pinched and Rachunek never stayed back...Pock went behind the net Rachunek was by the redline, he needs to stay closer or on the opposite side of the net. Which IMO i'd rather see Lampman paired with Rachunek.
