We don’t want to give him 60-some games. When you don’t have a backup and you want to make playoffs, that’s different but we have a really good backup that has proven he can play a lot of games and we have 19 back-to-backs this year.

Guy Boucher said ( about Erik Karlsson ) : “I think we’re looking at giving (up) less goals, I think that’s pretty much the priority now,” “When you look at our last three games, even if score four goals, we still lose all these games. We’ve got Washington coming in. Erik Karlsson, our top scorer, won’t be in the lineup. So, if we’re thinking we’re going to outshoot and out-skill and out-power the opponent offensively, we might as well give those guys the two points. We have to have our identity, and we don’t have it right now. Our identity is being outstanding defensively and getting the rest after. We haven’t done that, and that’s why we got our butts kicked” External link
