Nice to see a line like that can have such puck control and grind.
I like the way that line was used in the third. Put the puck deep, forecheck, eat the clock.

BP closes it out nicely in the third, game over, 6-4. Fun 2nd period, hopefully a sign of things to come, both in the AHL and NHL!

Too risky and unnecessary at that point in the game. Nothing wrong with playing safe and simple - actually, the best way to go. Could have just moved the puck along the boards, on the ice and out of the zone.

BTW, looks like ND beat Maine by a score of 1-0.

If you play it safe all the time, you become stagnant...taking a chance doesn't make you a selfish player.

It does in the last three minutes of a game where your team has taken several unnecessary penalties and allowed two goals against in a row.

There's a time and a place for everything... this was not the time for de Haan to 'prevent stagnation'.

Gotta know when to flash and dash, and when to just be overly safe. Has to do with reading the game, where it's trending, who has sway and what's the easiest way to ensure a win that is just minutes away.

We all know this... it's not rocket science.

And let's be honest, the delay-of-game penalty for shooting the puck over the glass is basically the easiest thing to prevent for a player at this skill level - and prolly the most unnecessary penalty to take in the dying minutes of a game.

This might be the first time I've ever seen someone accuse CDH of being too flashy.

Saw some of the ND game, and Lee looked pretty good. Drew a penalty from good grinding work late in the game. Looks very strong on the puck and too big for college players to handle, but not sure if he's got the skill to make it as a top 6 guy.
