Sunday's Dump & Chase: Just Gotta Ride It Out

New, comments

Until Pekka comes back, we're gonna see some games like the one last night. Carter Hutton ranks 58th in the league in GAA, 61st in Sv%, and sports a 1-4-2 record. I'm not the stats guy, but these seem like weak numbers. All the losses and all the goals are not 100% on him, but the numbers are what they are. We've got a couple of days off until the next game, then a big break for the All-Star festivities. That puts us about 2 weeks into Pekka's 3-5 week absence, so just buckle up and hope it's closer to the former. It's all we can do.
