You have to make sure the boys are protected before you take the ice. You really don’t want to take a puck there without protection.
The extra precaution didn’t help the Caps win the game and the Hurricanes were able to tie the series at two games apiece with a 2-1 win.
There going to have to step up those cup checks if they want to hold off the Hurricanes.
