SC has struggled all year with the PK and can't bury the puck while on the PP. They have the lowest goals against in the league yet are 6th from last in goals for. They just can't get any separation during the game score wise and also can't separate themselves from the opposition in the standings.
When they get in the playoffs they are going to struggle against the better teams and I will include Des Moines in that bunch of good teams. Good teams are going to play physical against them and they will back off. It has been a consistent theme in the playoffs with Varaday at the helm.
They struggle to just clear the puck while on the PK. They want to get fancy with it instead and end up turning it over instead of just dumping it down the ice whether it be up in the air so the other team cannot reach it, down the open middle of the ice or using the boards to their advantage to wrap it down the ice.
I will save rest of comments till later and hopefully that is during playoffs.
