Markov makes some bad pinches (though lately he's been better at choosing his moments), but Emelin isn't keeping enough track of what's going on and will sometimes skate around like a headless chicken. Both lack the foot speed to make up for positional errors.

I'd like to see Gorges with Markov, Emelin with Subban.

The only positive I've taken from this period so far is that I'm fairly sure MT will notice the problems and adjust in the intermission. I have faith in that.

With this team, a one goal deficit—particularly in the first period—is nothing.

Perhaps Markov and Emelin should try playing on different lines but tell me, where would this team be right now if those two had been injured the last couple months? The thought of that disturbs me far more than some of the gaffes they create.

Markov's value is on the PP. At ES and on the PK, he's been more of a liability than an asset. Maybe if he weren't overtaxed, things would be different, but they are what they are. Therrien needs to make a change in combos or in ice time allotment.

It's periods like this that make you scratch your head and pull your hair out.

We score nearly at will against teams with top-5 goalies and respectable D corps, but we struggle against Carolina's third string goalie and rather unfortunate blueline.
