From Snap Shots –
* Guentzel was particularly good and it looks like he’s picking up right where he left off last postseason. He finished with a goal and three assists for a game-high and career-high four points and was a factor across all 200 feet of the ice, making plays in all three zones. For example: he netted a re-direct goal off a pass from Derick Brassard in the offensive zone; displayed some nice vision in the neutral zone to find Kris Letang streaking up the ice to start a scoring play; and backchecked to break up a play before coming up with a crucial shot block at the end of a shift in the defensive zone.
