They've been running under some bad luck shooting percentages but they are THE worst team in the NHL Fenwick-wise so expect us (if we don't **** the beds) to dominate the game in their zone.
If I was Noel:
*give PBW some of those tough match-ups, and lessen the load on JKW and LAL
*put Redmond in for Clitsome, if neither can play LD than place Hainsey w/ Postma and Stuart w/ Redmond and split the OZS and match-ups somewhat evenly (little bit more on the 2nd)
Keys to winning this game statistically:
*remember we're a stronger possession team than them... use it to our advantage
*keep an eye out for that second line
*hope their sh% don't improve and regress to normal
I think we are sorely missing Timmy Stapleton on the powerplay. Say what you will about his game, he was a beast on the PP. In this game lets give Burmi and Wellwood some time on the PP and see if they can bring something to it. Kane and Wheeler seem to have so little puck control on the PP so far this season.
