Standing at 6' 5", 229lbs, George Parros is an intimidating figure on the ice. Apparently, intimidating to everyone accept the 5' 7" Mats Zuccarello, who stared down the Panthers enforcer after a goal mouth scrum in the second period…
…i got so pumped when I saw Zucc get right up in Parros' face. Fearless out there.
…not sure what Paul Maurice did to Zuccarello in the KHL, but he is a completely different player since returning to the Rangers this season. Physical, confident and balls as big as the building as Torts likes to say.
…and now that he's finally chipping in some goals, I'm all for the Rangers re-signing Zuccarello this summer.
