Canes-Caps, doesn't really matter as long as they don't go into overtime. I'm thinking Caps are going to take that, Hurricanes played in Montreal last night.
I will be at this game tonight, so again I will not be on here tonight...just scouting our division rivals , not that it will matter next season
Garon in net I think is a good idea. While he hasn't been stellar recently, the Panthers are known for, as we've seen in past games this season, putting tons of SOGs that are not quality efforts. If Garon gets faced with a lot of simple shots and makes a number of simple saves, I think it could bring his confidence up a bit.
Let's keep the wins against the Panthers coming...it seems the whole SE is slumping, and we've got our huge, embarassing slump out of the way already. So, with that in mind, let's make a playoff run!
Mathieu Garon will be making his first start of the year against Florida.
The rest of the line-up is a little in question as coach Jon Cooper said he will decide after warm up whether to go with six or seven defensemen. If he chooses to go with six, expect Andrej Sustr to sit out despite a solid effort on Friday.
I agree. There is a reason he wears the "C" in Syracuse, and it is LEADERSHIP. Give him a chance, and he will help the folks who started the season in Tampa play and understand Cooper's system. Congratz Mike and best of luck!
