“It’s crunch time,” rookie blueliner Brandon Carlo said after the win over Dallas. “We all realize that, so we’re just trying to make the simple plays and get the puck to the forwards and out through the neutral zone. At times we get caught, but at the same time, we’re following the play up, and getting behind the play a little bit more.”
