That is honestly unacceptable, especially when his first shift of the 3rd period came once O'Byrne got on. What happens, O'Byrne turns the puck over twice and the second goal of the game is eventually scored.
Also, down by a goal in the third period on the road after a strong end of the second and he starts the 3rd with his fourth line? He doesn't go back to 2 power lines? The effort over 60 minutes was not consistent, I will admit, but this was not their worst performance of the year, either. It might have been the coach's however.
I agree, Carbo just doesn't get it, and his coaching dissatisfies me, especially his line formations. However, he can't just roll the Dmen when the Habs are on the road. Besides, with Komisarek unavailable, who else is there at right D to stop Ovechkin? Brisebois?
