1. Did the Canes Start On Time?
Nope. I don’t really even think they started at all, to be honest.
Sebastian Aho scored a goal, and Petr Mrazek played a hell of a game for the most part.
Everybody else? I believe they’re still in Vegas somewhere.
When you look at the Canes’ record in the last 8, they’re 5-3-0, which honestly isn’t that bad. The issue comes from the fact that they seem to be making things harder for themselves, and are showing the entire league that they can’t string together the consistency needed to win any type of playoff series.
This key is arguably one of the most important, yet it is one that the Canes have failed to meet with consistency the entirety of the 2019-20 season.
There is no excuse for this type of play. The Canes’ roster is easily more skilled than it has been in at least a decade. A big wake-up call is needed, and soon.
