Carolina’s scoring woes continue
I just want them to blow someone out so I can stop talking about this. They play Buffalo on Saturday, and I would love for that game to end 100-0 Carolina so I never have to mention this Canes scoring drought ever again. I want this team to score so much that this scoring woes debate is a distant memory and they run away into the sunset but that doesn’t look like this is going to happen soon.
We know that Carolina’s scoring woes go back to the times of the Roman Empire, or so it seems. Since the team relocated in 1997, there’s never been a season in which they’ve had a consistent flow of scoring and a stressless campaign. Being a Carolina Hurricanes fan means that you must go through a thousand levels of stress every season because you chose this team.
Unable to shake their seemingly everpresent problem, it’s been a long-standing problem for the organization and I’m running out of ways to say this now. They cannot put the puck in the net and it’s costing them games. They should and could have blown the Ottawa Senators off the face of the earth with how one-sided this game was. They weren’t “nothing shots”, they were good chances the Canes were missing.
Carolina seriously needs to find a solution to their scoring issues. With this issue now costing them results and places in the standings, this isn’t something that can be ignored anymore. It’s been well-tracked that the Canes haven’t always been as clinical as some of the other top teams in the NHL, and now it’s starting to show up in the loss column. It needs to be fixed and quickly if the Canes want to be taken seriously.
