We would be out of playoffs if Carolina won their last game, primarily because of the shootouts.

If instead of Christensen we had let's say some Fedotenko clone that came to us for a tryout, we would have likely allowed fewer goals, especially on the PK and would have more regular wins.

BTW rookie Zuccarello also had 5 shootout goals.
