Half the team has lost a step, seemingly from fatigue. Greening, Butler, Condra, Smith, and Daugavins have all slowed down or are in a contribution "lull". I'm not saying they're not effective anymore, but they definitely could use some healthy scratch game to get their head straight. Spelling them off, one by one, wouldn't be the worst idea.
Foligno, JOB, Pete, etc.. could all use the extra time. Give Carks a 4th line forward shift or two. It's not a punishment, it's a young team that needs to get it's wind back.
3 games in 4 nights will do that to a team. Now we have 2 days off before they go back to work.
I wouldn't be opposed to giving the odd player a break. Bring up Da Costa or Petersson for the odd game, or someone in the farm that deserves to be rewarded, since it's pretty much clear Bingo won't be making the playoffs this year.
This game looked good to me. What the heck was going on, though?!? LOL! Lucic goes after Karlsson, then gives up and wants to go after Turris. Alfredsson starts pushing Lucic but Lucic doesn't want to play. Then Lucic takes a run at Turris. Did this calm down later?
