    Glad the Devi’s used half the empty net time doing circles in the neutral zone

    Nice to bounce back after a loss with a win since it’s easy to start a losing streak after a long winning streak like we had

    Get jobbed on a call, surrender tying goal, blow it off, come right back and score, then give the refs shit after the game.

    Winning formula.

    Kuzy has absolutely bought in - I’ve noticed it the last ten games or so. Skating hard, playing defense (diving to block shots and passes), and effortlessly gliding around the other team to creating chances. I hope that God Mode Kuzy is going to be engaged come playoff time. I haven’t seen him play this well since the Cup run.

    Kuznetsov playing exactly as well as he’s played all year and is now getting rewarded with points.

    Who could have seen it coming?

    Absolutely not, my friend. He was dreadful in terms of defensive zone coverage and most importantly effort at the beginning of the year. It wasn't too long ago that he was going for line changes instead of backchecking on fast man-rushes going the other way (directly ended in two goals against in two straight games and two third period benchings, if you remember).

    He has bought in - he's diving to block shots and passes, he's backchecking hard (instead of going for lazy line changes and/or not skating hard back to the d-zone), and he's not turning the puck over nearly as much.

    Kuzy has been night and day the last ten games or so, compared to how he was earlier in the season.

    I think your story sounds more interesting, but it doesn’t jive with the facts. It’s clear he’s bought in from the beginning of the year, and the numbers from game #1 reflect that buy-in.

    You saw consistent effort from Kuzy up until ten games ago or so? He wasn't backchecking hard at all and he was below average in defensive zone coverage. Lavi benched him multiple times for lazy play and now he's trusted with late-game situations. You don't see a difference with the drive, effort, focus, and buying in of Kuzy right now compared to earlier in the year? He's a completely different player to me. Not everything is about statistics and/or analytics.

    Sarcasm? Kuzy's effort has noticeably changed the past several games. Fingers crossed (and in Lavi we trust) that it continues.

    You literally cannot quantify effort, drive, focus, or buying in into any stats, I'm sorry. Kuzy hasn't been this good since the Cup run to me.

    Because he knows he could of had a shutout. 2 really soft goals, and could of had the PP GA.

    Time for Varly to take the reigns

    @twabby Kuzy is literally talking right now about how much better he's playing compared to earlier this year.

    On the NHL app it sounded fine. Could barely notice it. Will be glad when it’s not needed.
