Blacker is being relied a lot more form the looks of it. eakins seems to trust him just needs to get used to this greater responsibility
He seems much more confident in the offensive zone, compared to when he's playing defense. Actually looks like a forward at times. He's a bundle of energy, just need him to play more composed defensively.
team using blacker alot more in transition, and activating him offensively. defense was activated more in general tonight IMO. thought you could see kadri's explosive leg work for sure. could dangle through and around guys with ease tonight, but gave it up too which happens when you play that game. good in recovery though.
joe started really strong i thought but by the end he started to drift away from the net too much for my liking, but still made some very nice passes and was able to create chances out of nothing with his hands. they are brilliant.
scrivens is so confident in net. gardiner obviously and clearly best player on ice for both teams.
all of your posts have been hate from what I have seen. he played a good game tonight.
Hard to argue that he made some bad plays in the neutral zone, but it seems like his vision and hands have gotten even better since last season. I swear he made at least 8 - 10 beautiful passes tonight.
