The old Erik Karlsson is back.

Senators fans have spent much of the season wondering whether star defenseman Erik Karlsson really looks completely back to normal after tearing his achilles tendon last year. Sure, he leads the NHL in points by a defenseman, but does he have the same speed?

The answer is yes. The Senators lead the Penguins 3-0 after this beauty.
