Looks like Dallas may shut out Florida though. Bring some fire tomorrow and we could be back on top the division with a win.

Which is crazy cause with a Florida loss today we could be 1st or 5th in the division after tomorrow.

His defense was fine but he was slow on those passes and rebounds later in the game.

Liability is probably an overreaction. He just doesn't look like the Dougie we've come to know. His offense was a huge part off his game. I don't know if he's not seeing things as well or if he's not as confident in his shot anymore.

Offense is his game...based solely on defense he's a bottom pairing d man.

We need to put Fleury and Gardiner back together tomorrow. The biggest liability from the back line I see is Bean right now. He'll get there but TB isn't the team to do it on. Not saying Bean is bad either but he's been making critical mistakes the past two games and not really adjusting.

First game I didn’t get to watch all year.  I guess this loss is on me?  Give me all the poop emojis you want...apparently I, and the team, deserve them after this stinker! 💩

I didn't see the game, either. I heard the term "lackluster performance" more than once later last night when I got to check some scores.

The team is tired right now while TB was off for 4 days before starting this series last week. TB will probably put Vas the Vaj back in net because this is a crucial series and even a tired Vas is better than either of Carolina's rested goalies.

We don't even get two days off in a row until next Friday either and still have 4 more road games to get through + 1 more back to back against two different teams with no travel day.

I expect Vas as well. No idea why the Canes commentators are expecting the alt goalie.

Here is the projected lineup for the Hurricanes.

Defensemen

Slavin-Hamilton
Skjei-Pesce
Gardiner-Bean

Goalies

Scratch: Fleury

 

Still don't get why everyone is hot on bean after the last two games. Should be Gardiner and Fleury. Curious if Rod blends the lines a little more or goes back to this basic setup tonight. Also really wish we had TT at this point. Don't exactly know NHL concussion rules but we likely could be down him until at least next Thursday if he doesn't travel separate of the team.

    • Tepper could certainly do that without worrying about the cost, but I believe it would be at least a season too soon.  Especially, for an owner that kept Rivera and Hurney around as long as he did.  I see Rhule getting 3 seasons minimum before Tepper begins to get impatient. Darnold was a clearance aisle special in comparison to what some teams are willing to give up for a franchise QB.  If Sam crashes and burns, Rhule will likely get at least one more bite of the apple before being dispatched by Dave.  
    • I'm one to give us a reset on the back to back winning season narrative.  This is a new regime with a new owner.  The days of Fox and Rivera are gone and so should the whining about back to back winning seasons. If Rhule and Co. come out and have a winning season I won't be crying about waiting until 2023 for another winning season.  I believe we'll continue that success. If we start 4-0 It will give this team some great confidence for the rest of the season.   IMO it all lies on our O-Line and Darnold.  If the O-line gels together and Darnold limits the mistakes we'll score enough points to win.   Our defense is going to keep us in games and might even win one or two. 
    • I happen to enjoy listening to 89.  His takes are usually pretty brutal but accurate.  I think this is a next step for him and he'll move into the booth full time.  Hopefully for the Panthers. He is and always will be a Panther.   He may have had some wounds from being let go and he exacted his revenge on us.  Quite brutally in fact. His heart has softened and he is where he belongs. He'll be our first drafted HOFer.
