“They have truly embodied the identity ⁤we want to establish⁤ as a team. They bring a relentless ‌forecheck, physicality, and consistently play to their strengths,” Berube added, clearly impressed‌ with their performance.

From a ​checking standpoint to a⁢ production standpoint, Berube expressed his satisfaction with the team’s overall effort.‍ The Blues have been⁣ firing⁤ on ‌all cylinders, and their hard work has paid off in both ends of the ice.
