2. Frustrating style of play/lack of ability to finish scoring chances
Section 328, (a rather popular Canes fan page) put it beautifully on their Twitter page when they mentioned the frustration of having another disappointing result when posting at least 40 shots on goal against an inexperienced netminder. Once again, the Canes peppered the opposing goalie, on March 12 at MSG, to no avail.
The Canes have the second lowest shooting percentage in the NHL this season. It’s become a regular sight for this squad to see them at least double the amount of shots of the opposition, and it happened again last night. Hopefully, the Canes fare better against the Bruins.
The stat line appears solid for the Canes most games, under Peters, until you come across the final score. The style of play that he runs promotes puck control and a large quantity of shots on goal. However, the defense keeps breaking down and the offense cannot convert on scoring chances.
That all comes back to the system that Peters is running. He either needs to shake things up somehow, or the front office needs to find a new direction. The losses piling up are just one part of the frustration from the fan base.
