I've yelled at my TV a couple times when Hook & his line dump it in and go in on a forecheck when they really should be changing. It's a long change in the 2nd period, you can't **** away changes.
Probably the best GB U20 performance I've watched through 2 periods so far and it's only 2-2. France is good and they're not only keeping up with them but controlling the puck well. They're getting the pucks deep and battling in the corners which is what they have to do, they can't out dangle France lol I still get scared at the defense quite a bit, they stand there watching France and they seem to like going for hits at the blue line. It's worked so far but 1 missed hit and France can bury no problem.
Stewart is separating himself from the rest tonight. His end to end skate finally showed off his skating is better than the rest, he seems to have figured out when he can & can't be physical with international refs, and he keeps showing his defensive smarts which he's always done.
Saw a lot of Taylor/Morris that period and a lot less of Duggan which surprised me.
