So, he should be right back in his domain against the Nashville Predators. With eight games on the road, and nine points in those eight games, it’s quite obvious that Duchene has been a better player when away from the Pepsi Center.
Nathan MacKinnon has also been more productive away from the Pepsi Center.
Nathan MacKinnon Finding More Production on the Road
MacK has more of an even split in point production, with seven points on home ice, and eight on the road. Still, he’s played only 10 games on the road, while playing 13 games at home.
It’s a small difference, but MacK has been a more productive player on the road. Hopefully that will continue against the Preds on Tuesday night.
Goloubef believes that he can play at this level, and he’s excited for a chance to prove that on Tuesday night.
Any time someone wants to bring you in and you feel wanted, it’s a good feeling. This is my second chance and I’m here to make the most of it…It’s my job to be ready. That’s what this year is all about.
He’s also not the only one who believes in his potential as an NHL caliber player. Jared Bednar also expressed faith in the young man.
He’s a good skater, he can chip in on the penalty kill, he has a little of familiarity with our system, though it’s been a couple of years. . . In my opinion, he’s an NHL player, but he has to prove that.
So, expectations are high for the young man. He’s also stepping in for our best defenseman, so there’s that.
