Sure they tried it. But the puck either came out in front of the goal line or it rimmed around and out of the no-play zone and Smith was still able to get to it. And we consistently got beat to the puck. It's a trademark of this team, when the puck gets dumped in (or if it's just along the wall) we seem to be winning the race for it only to pull up and allow the other team's player to get to it first and then try to wrestle the puck away from him.

I don't know how much of a difference it would have made, but this game showed just how important Radulov is to our team and why we would not even look at a trade involving him.

Sloppy play all night. Better tighten up in our own end or it will be a long March.

I can't believe in our last Saturday night game of the year they went out like a led balloon.
