  1. Taken from another board, but sums it up nicely. 

     

    "

    Max Pacioretty has four goals over his last 19 games – just one assist in five playoff games. He leads the playoffs with 24 shots on goal of 46 shot attempts. 16 have been blocked; 6 have missed.

    Alex Galchenyuk has three assists in the series but has failed to score a goal in fifteen straight post season games. His last playoff goal was the overtime winner in the second game of the opening round series vs. Tampa April 17, 2015. Galchenyuk has 4 goals in 27 playoff games." - malmn

    You may have watched every game, but your memories of said games may betray you. The video doesn't lie. He's had high quality scoring chances and Lundqvist is making the saves.  Here is the article, with a video, again.

    I watched the video. He has had a few good chances and didn't score. The rest of the time he is floating around. He isn't creating chances, others are. Defensively, he is caught watching far too often. 

     

    I know now you want to defend him, but are you actually claiming he is playing great playoff hockey and only Lundquist is making him look bad?

    Floating around taking perimeter shots is not supported by the stats nor the accompanying video that i posted in this thread.  Nor is the lack of backchecking.

     

    Yes he made a mistake in game 4 but thats really it for him in 5 games.  Hes doing what he needs to do, just not scoring.  Its something that can happen... some bad luck and good goaltending by lundqvist over a small sample size.  Unfortunately the playoffs are a small sample

     

     

    I have watched him every game. He is not engaging like he can.  Once in a while he does, but not consistently at all. Of course he gets shots, but few are dangerous. He is getting all kinds of ice time but other then the one steal in OT, he is not creating many chances. He floats around and the guys doing hard work set him up. That would be fine if he scored, but he isn't. 

     

    When he he puts his shoulder down and starts driving the net, he will score. When he starts hustling like his line mates, he will create chances for them.

     

    He is the captain. Score or not, he needs to set the examp,e of playing with desperation. This is the playoffs, not a game against Buffalo in Feb. 

     

     


  4. Pacs is playing soft. He is taking perimeter shots but refusing to get to the dirty areas. He isn't back checking with any pressure. He is floating around looking for easy stick checks. Sure, one of those led to a goal, but had he missed getting the puck he was pretty much out of the play. 

     

    Most of the little guys are hounding players, chasing down the puck carrier, and working hard on the boards. Pacs simply isn't.
