This one could get ugly with Enroth in net, I predict Karlsson dominating us all night.
Agreed. Our defensive coverage has been atrocious, giving up odd man breaks and prime scoring chances. Karlsson has been playing fantastic and is so slick with the puck. He will have a very good night.
Was going to comment on them being a league worst in shot differential but it appears that is not the case.
They are indeed bloody awful at giving up shots (29th - ahead of only Oilers).
But they actually are good at shots for per game (9th)
However, IMO, they are giving up prime shots. They have had stretched of seasons where they give up a lot of shots, but they are mostly contained to perimeter shots with a clear line of sight for the tender.
This season they are giving up lots of shots and they are coming in the slot and around the net with screens or left all alone with no coverage.
Got to clean that up fast. Erhoff being out won't help.
