Other than getting up to game speed, Rachunek is far more fleet-footed, especially in backwards skating than Pock.

While indeed a difficult task, it was Pock that Kovalchuk blew by on the outside to set up the 1st goal yesterday.

The absolutely scary thing about Karel Rachunek is his Ozo factor. While playing well, he's 10x the player compared to Pock. But, when he makes mistakes, they are glaring and I fear they will be game and series turners like Sandis in NJ last year.
