      Thinking about last two games. I wonder how that went. Did Kevin McCarthy come up with the idea of moving Milano to top line, or was Lavi on the phone/in McCarthy’s ear during the games.

        I just got a different vibe with McC behind the bench. Very even 5on5 ice time last game. It will give you and your fellow professional analysts something to compare — game with Lavi before, two with McC, game with Lavi after.

        How different COVID protocol is now. No ten days isolation. How did he get to Sunrise? Did he fly commercial to Sunrise from DC? Drive down I-95? Did he go charter with the team through Tampa and just stay away from the team? Doesn’t seem his COVID experience was very bad if he’s back already. I would guess that he was involved in scratches, lines, pre-game stuff but it was McC for in-game decisions.
