Powerplay momentum continues to build
Carolina’s powerplay found some success late in the Senators game as they found a way to break the duck on the Canes half of the scoreboard late on and start to give the team life. If the powerplay can continue to build on its success from the game against Ottawa, then Carolina could see this game become a laugher and pretty quickly.
Most offenses will go as their powerplay dictates. Carolina hadn’t scored in 20 attempts but got one last night, and the team sprung to life because they had hope. It’s important for a good team like the Hurricanes to continue their abilities to produce on the powerplay. From now going forward, they need to ensure that the team makes the most of their powerplay chances.
It’s going to be a difficult game for both units, and they need to play well. If the powerplay is clicking, it becomes a whole lot easier to score goals given the issues the team has suffered trying to put the puck in the net at 5v5. When we talk about what drags the Canes out of this slump, a large part of the solution is going to be the powerplay and its ability to add when the chance
Carolina’s game against the Sabres tonight is going to be vital for the team to ensure a win for the hockey club. It’s been too long since the Canes have gotten back into the swing of things. They will need all the success they can muster to get two points out of this game.
