I can believe that. Mathematically, if all the teams were equal we would have about a 20.9% chance, but given that we have 6 games left against the "B" teams, I think we can do better.

What did you expect? Remember that our last game was a win over Detroit.... Part of me wants us to lose badly tomorrow so we have a chance to avoid the post-Red Wing-hangover.

Teams stand us up at the blue line, forcing us to dump the puck in. We cannot use this to set the puck up, often times resulting in the other team having a great opportunity to clear the puck.



Zidlicky would have a ton more points if people could finish his passes. He has done a great job on the PP in his role. He is usually counted on to pass first and not shoot, yet people find a way to blame it on him.

Zidlicky was far from our worst defensemen on the ice last night imo.
Interesting story here. I was sitting in the bench seats for a game against Columbus in December and, no joke, one of the Columbus assistant coaches was instructing his players to push everything up Zidlicky's side and wait for him to turn the puck over. I will admit that he gets a bad rap most of the time. However, sometimes he just makes me want to kill him (see the breakaway-giveaway he had on the power play against Calgary).
