It was an embarrassment, not because the Rangers dominated, but because the Canes did nothing to fight back. They simply rolled over.
Tlusty scored on the first shot of the period, less than a minute in. The next Canes shot? 18:58 into 3rd, after the Rangers tied it.
What did the Canes do in the 18 minutes between shots? Blueline and dump. Completely understandable given they were down to 5 defensemen, but still an embarrassment to watch. No offensive pressure the entire period.
Yeah, the Rangers were fighting for the playoffs, but they weren't fighting the Canes. The Canes had given in, simply waiting out the game and waiting for the Rangers to tie it.
Unless I'm mistaken, the Canes had less than 10 shots in the 2nd and 3rd combined. Playoffs or not, have some pride in your play.
