The biggest difference between the Krejci line and the Bergeron line right now is that they're beating guys one on one and using the opening to take the puck to the net. Horton comes down the wing on Krejci's PPG, retrieves the puck, and keeps going to beat the man which creates the space to make the hard pass across to Krejci. Lucic keeps barreling in looking to get the corner, and he's oh, so due to have the puck start going in. The second and third lines either aren't able to make that one move to beat a check and create a little chaos, or they beat a guy, but it's along the boards or in the corner, so there's no momentum to the net, and it's way too easy for the D to recover.
If there's one thing about DK I give him all the credit in the world for? He's become a dual threat. He scores goals like a scorer now; he doesn't spend all his time looking to get to his "office" like JT Superstar used to so he could feather a pass to one of his shooters. Something just changed in his game on the Cup run when he led the playoffs in goals - like he suddenly realized you don't have to have a howitzer shot if you shoot accurately and at the right time. His point total from 10-11 and 11-12 didn't change, but his goal total went up 10 and his assists down 10. With Pardubice, he had 16 goals and only 11 assists. You see the effect of his shooting on Lucic's point totals, too - as bad a year as Lucic had in terms of scoring, his assists total is right on par with what he did last year - about 0.435 assists per game. And like we saw in game three, when Lucic can bull rush to create space, he's a pretty decent passer in terms of making a play off of that rush.
Man, I bet they could get Bobby Ryan for him straight up if they traded him now.
