Bt brought in a player with what he thought was a player that could score 6 goals in his first 3 games. He also brought in a coach that saw things differently. Neal deserved to get run out of town after last year and after a summer of hard work he deserves his success. It is on BT and BP for not recognizing a change in Neal this summer but I think the main reason Tkachuk had an incredible night against LA was because of Lucic. Lucic allowed Tkachuk to be himself and not be pushed off his game.
So yes Neal got gifted 4 goals last night but I feel Lucic was instrumental without actually seeing it on the scoreboard in Tkachucks 2 goals and an assist.
