Why trotz keeps going to Erat and Fisher is beyond me. Wilson, Kostitsyn, even Josi or Ellis seem like better options. I think they rely too heavily on going with prescouting and just shooting at the goaltender's weak spot.
Read this morning that the Preds are 11 for their last 70 in SO attempts. That's pretty brutal.
Fisher yeah but I'm okay with Erat in there. Erat is pretty good at hitting the top corners. One thing I've noticed about him over the years is he used to skate up at a snail's pace in a shootout and take his time to pick a spot. He seems to, well, not be doing that anymore.
Legwand has the same move every time and last night it seemed really weak. He didn't emphatically fake the forehand like usual. He just jerked his shoulders a little and that was that.
