- – Alex Galchenyuk can snipe and it was simply terrific to see him choose to shoot on his goal after all of that attention around him. As he came down on that 2 on 1, I was sure that he was going to pass because that is what players who are struggling do — they pass. Galchenyuk never looked over once. He knew his skill the entire time. It was a brilliant moment. His excitement was obvious. I saw the piano lift right off his shoulders. He played the rest of the game with a higher level of confidence.
