Since I have the day off, I'll be happy to supply about 1000 clips of him doing so. In fact the last time he powered to the net on his off wing, 4 games ago, even my wife, head buried in a book, innocently asked why he doesn't do that every game?
Do you expect every single shot he takes to go into the net as well? He's a lite version of Ovechkin. He skates up the side with speed, gets into position to shoot, and does the second he sees an opportunity. It's not going to work every time. Occasionally it does.

He leads the team in goals. A lot of those came in front of the net, as well, and as the season has progressed he has camped out in front of the goalie more and more often.

You act like he's Kessel.

Percentages work in our favour also, I mean logically miller isnt going to shut us out again, I personally expect 4 goals from the fly guys. If we can hold sabres offense to the perimeter like we did for the entire game thursday we will win the series if we can pot a few.

Jeff Carter has shortcomings.

You, however, refuse to see what he's good at, and seem angry that he isn't the player you want him to be. Be happy with what we have. He's the best goalscorer on the team, and would be much better if he knew how to finish a one-timer.

edit: @ kurri

edit 2: If you think Kessel has more balls than Carter, I don't know what to tell you, except that you are blinded by anti-Carter bias.

tampa shooting at the pads of fleury for rebounds, flyers should take notice. Put everything on net, and crash.

Or he knows how much Kessel loves balls.

Some people are blinded by the hate. I agree Carter does have his shortcomings. Anyone with half a brain would realize what he means to this team.
Phil Kessel is nowhere near the player Jeff Carter is. Every watch Kessel back check and play D? Its quite comical.

As far as nerves go, the only thing I fear for Game 2 is that they play lights out on offense but completely take a dump on the ice on defense and Bob has a bad game losing 5-4 or something.

Well...what are we going to see in Game 3 since our fears (bad D and Bob being pulled) were born out (except we won!)? I think an OT is in the offing...we're overdue!
