I posted something similar in the GDT tonight.

The thing I am concerned with is the defensive play. We're still giving up way too many turnovers in our own end. For example, tonight when the game was 1-0, toward the end of the first, the Stars were in our end for most of the last 7ish minutes of the period. This was mainly due to irresponsible play in our own end, i.e. not getting the puck out when needed. These turnovers have been leading to more and more goals. I know it's been nice with the offensive play and all, but we have still been giving up a ton of goals; you can say it's because of the goalie, but in reality, a lot of the goals are due to poor defensive support of the goalie and giving up more than one chance. Pretty soon we're going to face teams who will figure us out offensively. The question going forward will be if the defense can be the true anchor of this team when it needs to be.
