If you've listened to Carlyle's interviews, he's said a couple times that he goes with the hot hand and in a sense, if its not broken then don't fix it. So my guess would be that Scrivens would get the start even though technically its not the "hot hand".
Hope our season home opener is not a let down. Didn't manage to get tickets though. Grabo line needs to pick it up, lupul needs to also pick it up. Hope kadri's line gets more min if they are playing like they did vs montreal. I thought Carlyle was going to reward the lines that where playing better yet, yesterday kadri only played 10 min.
Battle of the chirps..Komarov vs. Ott, Komorov vs. Grigorenko
Punch fest; Brown vs Ott, Orr vs Scott (2:10 TOI vs flyers )
Battle of the mishandled prospects: Kadri vs. Hodgson
Looking forward to that one. Hodgson had a goal today also. Really hope Kadri proves to be the better prospect. I hope Carlyle rewards their line with second line minutes. Hopefully Kadri can have a game like this.
I'd hope for Riemer to start since he is calm and doesn't let stuff get to him and affect his game, but Carlyle is probably starting Scurvy. This'll be our actual test game, since it was AHL level yesterday.
Yeah Scrivens was a bit shaky but I'm going to boil it down to nerves and being the starter in a season opener in Montreal..who wouldn't be nervous. No matter how shaky he looked though, he only gave up 1 goal and he won the game, gotta go with him tomorrow.
I also want to see more of the Kadri line, Kulemin has to wake the f up. I don't know what has happened to him the past year or so but even last night, he looked like crap.
