Meckler looks to be much improved from last year.
Clune's goal was dirty & very nice to see.
Zatkoff gave up a couple really soft goals, which has me a bit concerned. maybe first night jitters or something...
this quote from Morris is spot on
“We had too many passengers,” said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. “A lot of guys are going to have to play to their potential.
We had too many breakdowns in our own zone.
We needed every to play tonight and we didn’t have that. We had too many mishandled pucks that led to breakdowns. You don’t want to give up six goals.”
Hickey was awful - his turnovers were primarily responsible for a couple of the Portland goals. Kolomatis was consistenly getting beat as Portland advanced into our zone., As much as many Monarchs fans tend to think Campbell should be playing elsewhere, he was probably the best D-man out there last night.
