"We'll just have to make it work," Carlson said. "He's been out [and] I've been out this season for extended periods of time and you know, the guys that stepped up are great hockey players. We're all confident in them. They were, I think — our backbone of success this year was just people who stepped up when guys go down or get injured or whatever and have played awesome hockey for us, so if that's the case, we'll be looking for that."
