Romanov had a power-play assist, three shots, one hit and four blocked shots over 21:48 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

The 21-year-old Russian justified being placed on the power play when he fired a pretty two-line pass to trigger a man-advantage goal by Tomas Tatar. He also had 2:58 of ice time on the power play and added another 2:17 on the penalty-kill unit. Romanov may become a top-four defender soon.
