Barkov has emerged as one of the best two-way centers in the game, so it'll be interesting to see how he handles himself in a matchup against the most dynamic player in the league. "I like our matchups all year, but yeah, Barky will be the guy that McDavid will see most of the night," head coach Bob Boughner said. "There’s going to be some shifts where (Vincent Trocheck) is going to have to see him. Troch did a real good job in Edmonton against him, so against that guy, it’s not just one guy shutting him down. Your whole line’s got to be responsible and your D have got to be a part of it as well." This should be a good battle.
