– I hope Alex Galchenyuk and Jonathan Drouin are given some time to gel. They seem to really see each other. And if they are not a defensive liability, there is no reason why your best players shouldn’t be playing the most minutes. Drouin and Galchenyuk had tough assignments yet they were, with Lehkonen, the only trio who didn’t spend long stretches in their own zone. Galchenyuk is really coming out of his malaise well. Drouin is still doing gorgeous things over and over again. He had the best looks on the night and set up other looks. This feels like a matter of time but it’s results that count and you hope that Claude Julien has some confidence that this is going to translate into goals. Finally, in the third period, it did translate, with Galchenyuk seeing the streaking Drouin take it to the net to open the scoring. That ended 170 plus minutes of perfection for Corey Crawford.
