During his recovery from nine duels, Paul Byron was an attentive spectator. He noted an improvement in Evans’ playing.

“He shows a lot more confidence. It shows in his game. Playing with him is easy. He skates very well, he is aggressive on the puck. With the intelligence of Artturi [Lehkonen] and his ability to win battles, our trio was able to do some good things. »

Covering Connor McDavid is a perilous mission. Due to his extended absence, one would have thought that Byron would be in trouble against the NHL’s leading scorer.

“Throughout the week, I worked hard. I hadn’t felt this good in a long time. Sometimes you hope to have an easy evening for your return. But this challenge put me in the same mindset as if I was in the playoffs. I think we did a good job against McDavid. »

Jon Merrill and Alexander Romanov had another tough night. The two defenders are clearly not made to play together. Moreover, the interim head coach separated them from the second period.

« They’ve had a tough time. We were approaching this game like a game number 7. We didn’t want to wait until Wednesday to qualify. We didn’t want to give anyone a chance. »

–Dominique Ducharme
