Anyway it's pretty easy for both of us to bring arguments. You could say Perreault is the best faceoff man in the NHL and you would be right. But I could say he doesn't know what to do once he wins the faceoff in his zone, plus the fact that he wasn't that good on the draws last night, and my point would too be valid.
Dowd won the faceoff.
The problem I have is that we had ONLY players that could play in their zone on the ice and we still gave up a goal
So having Perreault, Koivu or even Langdon in there can't be worse as we gave up a goal anyway.
