I still think a lot of our problems is caused by our poor face-off % (thus, less puck possession to start with) and the small, top 6 guys who struggle with board battles. It really wears them down too.

I don't think anyone really screened Miller yesterday. He saw everything. We needed a big body presence in front. That's how Ottawa has beaten Miller this year! We need to work on deflections, etc. Miller is a great goalie but he is beatable and we made it a little too easy on him.
Alot of our problems yesterday were caused by a new years eve celebration that involved alchohol, Benny pouliot is the best player able to play hungover Happy New Year.
