That's because it isn't the same team. Let's see what we look like after a few games with Fisher, Frankie and Marty back in the lineup.

No one has mentioned this, but I think losing Wardo has hurt more than most want to admit. He's strong on the puck and forecheck. Cycled the puck well. The Preds struggle to break out but also struggle to maintain the offensive zone. Fisher and Ward were key last season keeping the puck deep in the offensive zone. Until last night, we had neither. Part of the low shot count is related to this problem. I predict that the disparity in the shot count will start to diminish with Fisher back.
