Matt Niskanen has been considered Washington’s number-one defender for years, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
I doubt anyone thought of Lars Eller‘s 2017-18 season — you know, the one in which he scored the Cup-winning goal — as a letdown. Still, he followed it up with a bounce-back outing that has me feeling real good about the future.
