They only talked about the practices because Rangers do it every second day and the Sens don't. Pierre basically said he's done it both ways and it really depends on injuries and fatigue factor.
Karlsson actually came out for the morning skate (first time in forever) and then he was -3 on the night. I'm sure that's just as relevant as their lack of practice.
As for reinforcements making a difference, absolutely. For one thing, Smith is not able to go and Pyatt will definitely help there. Harpur was struggling and was outmuscled by Zucarello, of all people. For game 5 back home, I'd like to see White. Play him on the 4th line and use home ice to control who he plays against.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
