Tonight, he was centering his own line and while he had support from his wingers, I felt he was more assertive in this one, more responsible for his own success. The steal on Datsyuk that led to the winner was a tremendous play, even more so considering the guy he stole it from.
Plus, in the Leafs game, they blew a lead and his scoring was spread out. Still big on his part, but in tonight's game, he controlled the game throughout the comeback, and created the winner. Much more vital to this win than that one.
