Keep your eye on Matt Coronato tonight.

Coronato drove the play most of the time the Wranglers were on the powerplay and almost every time he was on the ice. He set up Schwindt twice and one of them was a perfect cross-crease pass through traffic. Game two was his best in the playoffs so far. He should continue that momentum tonight.
