Kessel needs to cut to the middle and shoot.. His skating and vision would easily throw off defenders.

Use the wrist shot but cut to the middle and shoot in traffic. He does it like once a game and it's always a better shot than when he's flying down the wing.

But as we all know, you can never expect anything when it comes to our team.
Carolina always gives us troubles.

Washington should be an easy W if this team shows up and doesn't use the fatigue excuse.

I think our new systems will help. If Kessel can regain his scoring touch tonight then I feel we're going to demolish the Canes.

I remember either last season or two seasons ago, we were leading against Carolina, and Phaneuf pinched in. We were leading and he pinched, like we really needed our captain to give up his defensive responsibilities to try to get another goal. Eric Staal ended up on a breakaway and scored. I always blamed Wilson and his stupid run-and-gun philosophy.

That's not going to happen tonight. If it's late in the game and we're leading by one goal tonight, then Carlyle will get the boys to buckle down and secure the victory.

Lol. You guys walking the line kill me.

You've gotta be for the tank or against it at this point. The way this season works, you can go .500 until the last week of the season, 3 game winning streak and be a 7 seed.

I'm never going to support tank nation until we are clearly not going to challenge for a playoff spot. At that point I convert into the bottom out guy.

Here's hoping with the Gunnarson injury, Komi can be in the lineup and keep playin regular minutes. Has been our best defenseman by far.

I've been watching a bunch of different teams games on GCL and alot of the time the streams aren't availible until 7:15-7:20. So was just curious as to how long after actual gamestart the delay was. I know the B's home games start around the same time as you 7:05-7:10.

Depends what kind of pre-game time-waster they have going on at the arena.

Getter goin tonight Phil. He's usually good against Carolina cause their D is kinda average.


Top-6 is scary though, we'll have to be sharp.

pitts fans seem to be salivating over the idea of putting kulemin with malkin (khl linemates)
there could have been something in the works

If Kessel's not going early, for the love of god put him with Kadri.

Both gifted offensive players that see the ice well.

It's a no brainer, and it boggled my mind that it hasn't been done before

At least for me, GCL is always about 3-5 minutes behind the actual game, I've had a few goals spoiled for me by checking twitter or this site while watching

Agreed. Usual 92 points translate into 56, or 3 games above .500 this season.
On the other hand, I'm looking at standings and there are a lot of "weak" teams that are well above .500 and some of good teams behind us that will rise eventually. Losing two games with 2 goals leads and Buf on their back-to-back night could be costly as there are those 3 games above .500 right there for you.
Only hope is that we will get even better defensively learning RC system and continue getting good goal-tending and secondary scoring (and maybe even main scoring eventually).
