Capitalize on the Powerplay
I know, I sound like a broken record. Powerplay, powerplay, powerplay. I have a feeling, due to Tom Wilson‘s antics during the preseason, that the Carolina Hurricanes are going to see their fair share of man advantage situations in tonight’s game.
Martin Necas, powerplay wunderkind, scored his first powerplay goal in the NHL against the Montreal Canadiens Thursday night with a BEAUTIFUL deflection right in front of the net. That makes him a powerplay goal per game player so far.
I may be putting a bit too much emphasis on Necas’ powerplay skills, but man, was it refreshing to see the kid score on the Canes’ first powerplay of 2019-20.
The Hurricanes’ powerplay units have been seemingly upgraded from 2018-19, with the additions of Ryan Dzingel, Jake Gardiner, and Erik Haula alongside Martin Necas. If the Carolina Hurricanes want to take full command of this game, they need to capitalize on every scoring chance they get on the powerplay.
