We may have second-line Raymond and top-line Perron. That’s the update.
(As always with goaltending, that could change, but polls are leaning Ned.)
Keys to the Game
- Special teams not “special” teams: our units haven’t been god awful, let’s keep it that way, because we know how quickly our powerplay can go pooperplay. Not that we even need to kill penalties because we don’t do bad things but you know these refs and their imaginations.
- Stevie Y Goon Squad: it’s the Hawks, there will be scuffles, disagreements, and perhaps even fisticuffs. I’m tasking Chiarot to prevent Larkin from throwing any punches, we don’t want a Mantha Maimed Mitten Moment.
- Old friends: don’t let AA score, if Mrazek is in net don’t let him get the s-word. We have dumber tweets to send than “lost the trade!”
