Bruce Cassidy said : “You’re always going to get the power-play acumen from him,” “He’s going to make his breakout passes. He takes a lot of pride in taking the other side of the puck — a lot of pride. If you watch video, he’s boxing out big guys every night, he’s committed to that. He’s not leaving the zone early, he’s making sure pucks are going out of the zone before he is, all of the little things that make a good defenseman” External link

The last one is obviously one when you have a lead. But obviously something happened there, a flash screen, because he’s going to stop that one.

Bruce Cassidy noted : “Some of it has evolved from 5-on-5 play,” “He’s a little more active. I think with that second [power-play] group that he’s predominantly on, [the offense] runs through [David Krejci] a lot, so we’re trying to get Charlie to, ‘Listen, get him the puck in certain spots, but once we’ve moved it around, it doesn’t matter who shoots.’ Maybe he’s the guy it runs through initially, but once he draws some people to him, finds a seam . . . then it’s whoever has it in the best spot. A little bit of that is him being deferential, but some of it now is probably recognizing that the right thing is to shoot a little more often. Not all the time, but a little more” External link
