I don't think it's the physical part that lacks... It seems to be on the mental side of the game.. Weird for such a smart player!

I'm not too worried.. the guy works his ass off (as evidenced on the second goal). He'll pick it up.
The big ice hasn't really messed up Plekanec and Markov, though both are more familiar with the transition.

serious "karma" at work on Gally's goal.

a few seconds earlier his play on the MaxPac rebound (controlling the puck in tight, going back hand to forehand and visibly trying to lift it over the goalies leg in tight), was a thing of beauty... didn't get the goal, but it was the kind of play that an elite player regularly pops up on the highlight reel for executing.

love that a few seconds later he gets a goal that bounces off of him...

going to be fun watching him for years to come!

Can Pacioretty stop getting destroyed all the time? He's gonna get hurt.

I really enjoy watching kids like Galchenyuk and Gallagher. They bring a lot of enthusiasm.

I see more people just being concerned, he's had flashes tonight. People watching the game should see that.

Yes, it's second game. So it's not a huge deal. But it doesn't stop the fact that he's playing like an absolute homer at times tonight.

They played over there when they were younger, plus Olympics, etc. This is DD's first time. Not that is a good excuse, but it could explain the timing problems. He's fanning on pucks. He never does that.

I think he buffed up too much in the off-season, he needs to cardio his weight down and let go of the weights for a bit.

If we're using that math, than Daniel Winnick is on pace for like 164 goals.

I like that he has that kind of skill, and that he shows such a willingness to get into the dirty areas and go for the garbage goals

Less so when he's scoring against us, of course, but what can you do?

Good game, all. Cheers!
Classy post - respect...

Only three more games to evaluate and make a huge decision. Stay, or back to Sarnia... Glad I'm the one making THAT call!

Beautiful period of play by Galchenyuk. Really battled for every inch of ice he got, and was rewarded for it.
