The Canes may have a number of defensive changes planned for Game 3 against the Penguins, but defenseman Niclas Wallin said one thing definitely has to change.
"We have to be smart," he said. "We have to have at least one guy in front of the net, because they're getting some good chances and getting a couple of whacks at it, and that can't happen."
The solution? Wallin said the Canes must be more bruising in front of their net.
"This is playoff hockey," he said. "That doesn't mean you go out there and kill anybody. But you've got to take your guy away, and we haven't done that this series."
