Phaneuf with a really nice period. His shot is hitting the net more and he made a nice play to knock that puck out of the air on the stretch pass.
Are you just saying that because he has scored the last two games? Phaneuf had 2 shots in MTL, zero in Winnipeg, and 2 in WSH. IMO to be considered a solid defenseman with a good shot (which is what we all think he is and is capable of) he should be putting up 3-5 shots a game consistently so i think he still has work to do.
