The sooner this team gets it's PP and PK back on track, the sooner people will be calling them a Cup contender again. The team hasn't been bad in general 5 on 5, the special teams is just making everything seem like it's going to hell, which it certainly is not. Good special teams builds confidence and wins games in this league.
I mean, I hope we lose and this team is terrible. Jones! Fire AV!
They rank 10th in 5 on 5 GF/GA ratio (1.15). Leaders are CHI at 1.45 per. Advanced stats wise, they rank 5th in Fenwick and 3rd in raw Corsi %. So 5 on 5 has been solid to good.
Special teams is the problem, as you mentioned. They should still fire AV though
