In the 12 games this season when the Predators have been without two of their four Opening Night centers (Lombardi, O'Reilly, Legwand, Goc) they've scored a total of 18 goals.
1.5 goals per game is not going to get it done...
In the 10 games this season when they've had 3 of the 4 in the lineup they've scored at a 3.1 goals per game clip which would be good enough for 6th in the league.
In the two games all four centers were available, the Preds scored at a 3.5 goals per game clip.
Without the centers in the lineup, it's too easy for the opposition to key in on the two scoring lines and without a game changing offensive talent anywhere in the lineup, the top-six just doesn't score. Wilson scored tonight from the 3rd line, but the PP didn't contribute anything, there was no scoring from the defense, and the top-six was shutdown.
The team must address that center position...
