The Montreal Canadiens looked fresh and ready to roll during their play in round against the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

While Carey Price stood out as the best player in the series, the Canadiens also had one of the most improved players. 

Youngster Jesperi Kotkaniemi looked like a brand new man through the series, playing a game full of confidence that we just didn't see earlier in the season. 

Not only did he look confident but he also looked much bigger and the stats show that he was throwing his weight around. 

Kotkaniemi finished the playoff round in third place overall for hits as he registered 19 hits which comes out to 4.75 per game. 

To put that in perspective, John Tavares, Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander of the Toronto Maple Leafs only average a combined 4.6 hits per game. 

Great to see KK coming into his own!
