I know he's having issues in his own zone, but for those who are watching, is Almqvist getting more comfortable with the North American game? He's now got 4 points in his last 3 games.
He struggles with some reads, but his offensive comfort is really coming along. He really has a very good feel for that end of the rink. The smaller ice surface helps him on the offensive end because he makes quick decisions there, right now it is harming him the other way, but I think he will get better in his own end. Kid really understands positioning and has a fantastic stick.
That's good. That's exactly what GR needs: a goalie who can step up when the rest of the team isn't bringing it and give them some momentum. McCollum and Pierce seem to struggle with that kind of pressure.
