Tops / Flops Metz-Nice: Gouiri still maestro, harmless Messins

Dylan Larkin has elevated his offensive game to a new level this season

Only a special few National Hockey League players are capable of making moves like the one Larkin used to easily sidestep Stars defenseman John Klingberg. Alas, being a captain involves more than simply saying “do exactly as I do.” As Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman (himself a former captain) indicated last year, Larkin has been an effective leader throughout his tenure with the team.

Identifying Chelsea’s biggest problem during this rough period

Everybody thinks they know exactly what Chelsea’s problem is right now. Some think it’s the selection headache Thomas Tuchel is suffering from due to injuries and a COVID-19 outbreak in the team. Others believe it’s the fact that the Blues have played an unimaginable 18 games over a span of 59 days. There are also those who simply choose to ignore the diagnosis and pin it on the issues the club is usually met with throughout the winter period. The funny thing is they’re all correct.
