Soderberg took a very grounded approach when asked what it was like to play last night.
“It’s just hockey and I know that game,” he said. “I felt comfortable before the game too.”
For what it’s worth, coach Claude Julien liked what he saw from the Swedish rookie.
“He showed me enough to be able to move into (Bergeron’s) spot,” he said. “I thought he played well, and although there wasn’t maybe the chemistry that you see with that line usually because it’s his first time, certainly not disappointed in the way he played tonight.”
