I've said it before. I'm a fan now for over 50 years. Started out in Chicago watching Mikita and Hull and later moved to Detroit. Pavel is the most entertaining hockey player I've ever seen. He does so many things so very good. Last night at one point he won 10 out of 14 faceoffs. The guy quietly works so hard on every shift. He always seems to be 2 moves ahead of every one else. I feel so lucky to have been a wings fan and watched this guy every night.
His backcheck on Kane last night was unreal. Anyone have video of that? I can't find one.
From a GM, "Detroit is the best team we've played this year. It's not even close. Their puck control is incredible...You have to hope your goalie has a great night to give you a chance."
