Good points, but too extreme. Words like never are overused. Some credit has to be given to the other team. Peca made a good play and got denied.
Having said that, the coaching staff has to figure out what we need to do to succeed more on 5-3's. In general it's a problem. We are, in general, falling on our face on 5 on 3's. We generate nothing on quite a few 5 on 3's.
However to say we should always score, that's too much. You should have a bar and decide which side you are on. Maybe it's you score 80% of the time on 5-on-3's.
To say we deserve to lose because we failed on a 5 on 3 is too simplistic. There were many other oppurtunites for us to put them away and we didn't. It was a key moment, but there were others in that game as well.
