I could just copy what I wrote before the start of the Anaheim game how this has to be a must win game and there is no excuse not to get one here. We never seem to do well in Carolina, but we did win there earlier in the season of course when the team was doing very well. Scoring first is a must and we have to try to get at least a two goal lead. I think if that happens, momentum will swing in a positive direction.
Okay, enough of the bs. This is a great Saturday to turn things around for good. It would be nice to follow up those big road wins in New Jersey & New York and get a win in one of our tougher arenas to play.
Lets see if Garry can create some energy with his return. A powerplay bomb could help with that. But it will be good to see how much he means to this club. And we can also see what Smithson can bring.
It would be a huge boost to take both games this weekend, hit 70 points, and go into the deadline with a little momentum. It would sure be nice, if these guys insist on struggling a bit while staying afloat, to start to heat up as the playoffs get really close. Anyway, bring 2 tonight, LGP!
