Behind The Glass: Memorable Moments of Episode 2

Check out the highlights from the second episode

by Bill Meltzer @billmeltzer

1. "30 seconds... not one shot on the net!"

One day after the loss to the Bruins, a perturbed Alain Vigneault barks at his players during a drill that displeases him. The puck stays along the perimeter and never make its way into the areas where goals are likely to be scored.

"Thirty seconds in the zone, not one shot on net!" Vigneault hollered. "Get it on the inside! We're on the outside, doing (bleeping) nothing!"

2. "Next time, that's going in the net."

One segment of the show depicted the bond that has developed between fellow first-round draft picks Morgan Frost (2017) and Joel Farabee (2018). Roommates at camp, the 20-year old and 19-yeat play video games in their hotel room near the Skate Zone and share some stress-relieving laughter.

Although both play well in camp, neither is either to record a point in a preseason game despite an abundance of prime chances.

Farabee grins sheepishly, recalling a chance in the Boston game that he put off the right post and then a point blank follow-up on the other side that found the goalie's outstretched glove along the ice.

"I've definitely watched that one a few times," Frost said. "Next time, that goes in the net, I think."

3. "When I get the suitcases out, he's not too happy."

Shayne Gostisbehere talks about how his life has changed since he has been in the NHL. In a segment featuring "Ghost", his girlfriend Gina and their three dogs, Gostisbehere said that one of the dogs always freaks out when it's time for Shayne to pack for a road trip.

Later, Gostisbehere said of trade rumors involving him, "it's my job to work my butt off so they won't want to trade me."

4. "Six shots on net?! Holy (bleep)!"

Vigneault, watching the Sept. 21 game from the pressbox while seated next to general manager Chuck Fletcher and assistant GM Brent Flahr, cannot help but notice how frequently rookie hopeful Carsen Twarynski is around the puck.

Taking a glance at the stat sheet during the second intermission, Vigneault colorfully takes note of how many shots Twarynski put on goal, including putting his own rebound into the net.

5. "An all-around good guy.... me!"

Video hands the starting lineup list to Kevin Hayes to read out to his teammates in the dressing room. Among others, Hayes introduces the starting center as "an all-around good guy... me!" and Justin Braun as someone whose entire wardrobe consists of things he didn't have to pay for.

In the final segment, the cameras capture Fletcher and Vigneault deciding that, although he progressed well in camp when wealthy, that Frost is better off starting the season in the AHL to get all-situations ice time.
