Another sub-20 xGF% period. The problem isn’t that it’s not their night, it’s that they’re getting run out of the building.
Schedule loss. They’re playing a very good team that got to sit home last night and watch the Bruins play a tough game in Florida last night. They’re seriously lucky it’s only 2-0. They don’t have the legs tonight.

Carolina plays a style with a lot of borderline interference, holding and hooking but always seem to have one of the best power play to penalty kill differentials each year. I don’t understand it.

They look tired last few games. Better get that fitness level up come playoff time if they want to make a long run.

Now we think that they have a poor fitness level?
I assure you that they won’t have to play a back to back on the road while the other team gets to wait at home in the playoffs.

Not just this game, they have looked tired lately to me. I’m probably worrying about nothing, I do that a lot.

It’s just normal up and down of an 82 game season. That’s why it’s good that they banked all of those points early. Every team goes through a couple weeks where you not playing well.

I mean, I’m not as calm about how they’ve played lately, but they’re starting to plumb the depths among their forwards and have been playing quite a bit lately. I think the solutions are:

-use the break to rest the older, bigger guns
-get JdB back into the team
-get one more middle-6 forward
