Tampa was 1 for 5 in game one, zero for two in game two and 2/3 tonight...... 

Thats a 70% kill rate.... we are doing 15% better than FL

Yea but even with those numbers the eye test says they’re hanging on by a thread during those power plays. Felt like Tampa has been well in control on power plays while the hurricanes are struggling to even maintain the zone

Yeah but we were in the 80% range during the regular season and maybe the high 80s in the series with Nashville.

We were at 85% during the regular season, and 88% agaist Nashville, Tonight is the first time they have done well on the PP....

Also Tampa bays first PP unit is ridiculously stacked.

Our PK is very good when it's clicking, I am guessing our injuries have a little something to do with it.

This post doesnt pass the smell test there are no almosts..... Every team in the NHL would be lucky just to "hang on" agaist Tampas PP1 unit.

Gotta imagine Mrazek gets the nod in game 4. He played a really good game and had no chance on both of Tampa's PP goals - our PK tends to play super aggressive, which means if they beat the initial pressure, somebody is going to be wide open in front of the net. With all the puck handlers Tampa has, we really need to change that strategy.

It didn’t help either that on the two scoring PKs the guys the Canes had in the box were big penalty killers, Aho and Skjei.  Aho, in particular, is an ‘annoying’ penalty killer.  He’s got an active stick, fast, harasses the PP puck carriers in all 3 zones, and is a constant threat to grab a lose puck and get a shorty.  Having him in the box makes Tampa’s PP that much better.

Honestly both of those goals were flukes in a way. Ya they both were cycle goals, something we rarely allowed all season but mostly just cause one of our guys over skated. We did a lot better on third not getting out of position or getting stuffed on the wall and getting the puck to our stretch defense mode. That said…
 

Ned has been stellar on the PK and Mrazek hasn’t had the time in net in game to get comfortable. You really only started to see him do his head shake thing after a save in the third. It’s a trade off. I’m not sure Ned saves 35/37 but who knows.

This team desperately needs a few extra days of rest. Why does the NHL schedule things like this? You would think they would want their teams to be better rested.

Cause they are rushing to get things done so they can have a regular season in October. 
 

I don’t know why they didn’t stack the days of rest before the series though. Instead after game four for us and game one for Vegas/Avs. 

Luckily, we get 2 days off after game four so we can go straight home Saturday night after the game and get our boys two days rest at home where as Tampa will only have one full day off.
