With the Carolina Hurricanes off to a 3-0 start, it’s tough to nitpick a lot of things. Their power play conversion, sitting at 4-for-12 (33%) doesn’t offer much to criticize, at least superficially. Taking a deeper look shows that some negative tendencies are still there (sloppy passing, inability to get into the zone and set up) but they haven’t derailed the Hurricanes so far.
That said, let’s take a moment to recognize the improvement that we’ve seen early on this season. Adding to that, the team still isn’t firing on all cylinders, so there is room to get better and play a more complete game.
For the rest of the NHL, that should be a scary thought.
Okay, Caniacs, how do you feel about the Hurricanes power play through the first weekend of the season?
