At 3:18 of the first period in the Bruins/Kings game play was stopped in a neutral zone face-off in front of the Boston bench. When play resumed the clock was not started with the puck drop, it started 1 second prior to a whistle and then was stopped when the play was blown dead. The official timekeeper removed 6 seconds from the clock to account for the missed time.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
