Even if you don't include the 4G game, he's over a point per game.

That's the encouraging sign for me.  You could write off that first game as Ottawa being not ready, luck on some goals etc, but he's been a point a game guy in the other 5 games as well.

His release is just incredible. He'll be catching goalies by surprise for a long time.

Those aren't Pylons he's going through either.  Probably one of the best D pairings in the game today and he almost had his way with them.

Can the forever posted question on these boards, 'why can't we have nice things'?, be finally put to rest this season?

Babcock has taught Matthews, early on, how to honestly lie.

Quote
We know what Babcock thinks of Zach Hyman. Asked Matthews if he agrees Hyman is underrated part of success on their line with Nylander.

The media could not be played.   :-\  I'm guessing this is one of those super-secret, self-destructing Canadian links?

I can't find a streamable mirror for it (because it's not a scoring play). It's a gif of Matthews taking a reverse pass at the blueline against Tampa, taking it into the zone with speed and stickhandling it through Stralman up high, Hedman down low, and getting a good shot in close on Bishop that he just gets a piece of.

Is it wrong that I read that in Bob Cole's voice?

I'm not sure any play-by-play guy could speak fast enough to describe those moves in real time. Bob's call would be reduced to something like "Auuuusssston Matheeeeewwwwwwwwwws [rising tone] ..... oh baby!!!"
