I've been pretty vocal about my dislike for O'Byrne but I'm not even going to muster up a "told you so" after that because (a) it could happen to anyone and (b) I felt really bad for him.

It sucks it had to end that way but I still feel much more reassured by the effort in the last two games...a couple of shootout goals the other way (and O'Byrne hemming the puck around the boards instead, for example) and we could've been 2-0...instead we're 0-0-2 which still isn't the end of the world.

The effort is the main thing and I saw it tonight so I'm happy.

Edit: also for anyone putting this solely on O'Byrne, we still had two powerplays after it happened and we had just as much a chance as they did to win it in the SO. Blame our anemic offense instead.
