Derek Stepan: "I'm Much Closer To Being Myself"

After missing training camp and the pre-season, Derek Stepan has had some ups and downs with his play through the first seven games of the regular season, but on Wednesday he told a group of reporters that "the last two games I'm much closer to being myself".  Stepan also discussed playing without Henrik Lundqvist in Philadelphia Thursday, what Chris Kreider brings to the team and to Stepan's line with Brad Richards, and why these past three days of practice have been so good for the team.
