Just give the same effort against the canes as we did the pens and we will be fine
Theres the million dollar question. Will this team put up the same effort they did wednesday and Friday against the Pens? Hope so but not holding my breath.
Canes are beat up mentally and physically but they still have some guys who can put the puck in the net.
I'm really curious what they're going to have left in the tank for the game tonight. Last night was a war + travel = tough to have same energy for this game. Tonight will tell a lot about the rest of the way.
I expect a convincing win by NYR.
My expectations are that there will be less fluctuation in the standard of play going forward. Zuccarello, Clowe, Brassard especially have given the team more texture, more creativity and unpredictability, and it may be pulling up the level of play by some other players too.
The best thing is they seem to make more standard hockey plays, like passing to a guy who is open (who made the effort to get open) in the slot, or near the circles, etc. and shoot the puck.
I'd love to see them add a bit more of the going to the crease approach tonight.

definitely need to see some more of that...zuke has looked good since returning. 100 times better than the first time around and seems to have so much more confidence...now he just needs to start cashing in and getting some points to go along with the chances
