By "don't screw this up", do you mean don't lose or don't win?

I wonder if this team even realizes they have to get into playoff mode NOW. As in, THIS GAME. And not get out of it until the yearly exit interviews.

Absolutely, as I said somewhere on here. You can't get blown out 4-0 at home against the team you're chasing in your division at the halfway point of a shortened season with a back up goalie in their net.

If you do, you aren't going beyond the first round of the playoffs IF you make it. You don't have what it takes to sack up, unless you just somehow FORGOT.

Now, they have to sack up and bear down just to get in. I don't think it happens this year without a shakeup of some kind.

A piece of TT.

Canes lucky last game, we didn't play Green, Laich, Erskine, Poti, Hillen and we did play Sarge.

Caps line rushes this AM:

26 - 19 - 8
16 - 90 - 20
25 - 9 - 42
24 - 83 - 15
17 - 85 - 21

One of those bottom two lines won't play.

Ellis in net for Canes.

21 - Brooks Laich on the 4th line.

Ellis in net for Canes.
Ribeiro relegated to the third line. You think Oates is a bit po'd at him for his excessive yaking to the referees, i.e. against the Islanders.

Certainly not showcasing him or helping his value by doing this.

Not this year, I'm afraid. Shortened season, new coach, seats still sold, and the ever-present "injury excuse".

GMGM is here for at least the rest of 2013.

Some of his best production came with Ward, so there's not much to read into it. He and Ovi together are a possession trainwreck at ES, and they probably want to get Ovi back to producing with not-Ribeiro with the deadline looming and all.

I think they realize it , they just have no confidence right now. They looked lost last game, that's for sure.

Katie Carrera ‏@kcarrera

Mathieu Perreault, Wojtek Wolski, Brooks Laich, Cameron Schilling and Mike Green taking part in the scratches skate. Poti probably back in.

Yay more Schultz, can only help with the demise of GMGM.

Perhaps, but Ribeiro may not be seeing it like that. I'm sure being placed on the third line is not lost on him and he's looking at who his linemates are he's probably saying to himself, **** this I can't get away from this team fast enough.

Eh. Ribs has been in the league a long time. He knows what "sending a message" looks like.

I suspect whether this looks like a message will come down to icetime more than anything. Ovi has 3 ESG all year. He and Hendricks are not guys you're dying to stay with at ES so far.

I dont get why Oates thinks its so great for hendricks to be on Ovi's line. From my PoV theres absolutly no chemistry there. From hendricks always forcing passes to ovi, overstakating the pucks, constantly falling down, to ovi not wanting to play along the boards, needing passes for one timer goals, etc.

I'd rather see this for lines tonight:

85 - 19 - 8

16 - 9 - 42

17 - 90 - 20

26 - 83 - 25

honestly would have preferred Schilling in tonight over Schultz. the way he got beat for that icing which led to the hurricanes back breaking third goal was an embarrassment. its like the guy has concrete in his skates.

i know schilling is unproven and young but at least you know hes not getting beat out for an icing most of the time.

It's a cycle, we are gonna pick up a point here in an ot loss and then win the next game. After that we will proceed to lose a few straight only to win one or two after that. These few points here and there mean everything is fine! No training camp, fluke season, just need to re group!

Schilling was running around a bit last game, but at least he's got some mobility and upside.

Poti's just been horrid this season.
