Relation to Johnny Gaudreau: None
Gaudreau impressed in his playoff debut last night for Nashville as he took on the big role of trying to fill the offensive void of losing both Ryan Johansen and Mike Fisher in Game 5. Gaudreau brushed that off, along with the rest of the team, and did not get any points but he had the best faceoff for the team at 71%. Not bad at all for his first big game.
Regular Season Games Played: 53
Kase had his game for the crucial second game of the series for the Ducks. He registered the team-leading four shots in that game, drew a penalty that led to Sami Vatanen's powerplay goal that broke the drought of being scoreless, and tied the game that Anaheim eventually went on to win.
One century of this game and League is a wonderful milestone to celebrate. Let's hope to do this in the next century!
