The rest of the team has to pick up the slack when there are injuries. They showed signs of life against Detroit by scoring 3 goals, but then proceeded to get shutout again last night. There are players who are capable of playing better than they have shown and should be contributing more. Richards looked like he was going to put the team on his back but he seems to have run out of gas.
When Nash and Callahan are in they draw defensive attention and coverage. Right now you have guys who would normally be going up against second pairings trying to beat other teams' top defenders. It's more than a matter of missing the goals those guys contribute, it means missing goals from the rest of the roster that would get scored because of advantageous matchups.
