It's a frustrating outcome, no doubt. Three times, we had absolute momentum and were dominating, leading to what should have been goals:
1) Sullivan and Legwand in alone when it was 0-0...Sullivan gets pokechecked, Legwand can't elevate the puck.
2) Erat tries a tap in with an open net. Any mustard on that poke and it's a goal, and we're up 2-1. Instead, he takes too much time and weakly tries to shove it in, giving the defenseman time to get a stick on it. Shortly after, the Red Wings score on a PP to make it 2-1, and then 3-1.
3) O'Reilly and a yawning net when it's 3-2 and we're, again, dominating. Enough said on that one, and he knows it.
Props to Howard, he definitely made a statement tonight, but this is a game that in spite of that, we should have won, and convincingly.
Oh, of note also....Hamhuis and Klein on the ice for three straight goals, once again. I don't get it.
