99% sure it isn't Chiasson tho, he put it off the goalies pad while he was being dumped to the ground. Then Smith put it in the goal from the side of the net. No idea how they called Eakin on that assist either.. I donno it's so long ago now tho I forget ;P
I thought Oleksiak was guilty of blindly ringing it around the boards and coughing it up a fair bit against the Aeros, but he really cleaned that up tonight. He didn't rush things down low, took a look and either chose the right option(s) or skated it out of danger.
He has the size to stand in and at least protect the puck and wait for support and the mobility to get it out of danger. He just stood in and made better decisions. I didn't see anything I'd change about his game tonight. And if his breakaway stretch pass in the 2nd was on the tape of anyone but Petersen, he might have had an assist.
well he made up for it by taking that shot in the stomach.
I missed that at the end, because I was sneaking to the other tab to comment on yet another horendous non-clear slap pass by Toby blindly onto the tape of the Heat defenseman, which he thankfully made up for with the bellyblock.
