I never said that. I said that we came out with the jump we've been coming out with, and similar to several other recent games, we gradually petered out and were clinging to a one goal lead for most of the game. Dallas's chances started coming hard and heavy with about 6 or 7 minutes to go in the first, and didn't really let up for the rest of the game. We had very little sustained offensive pressure, and instead spent most of the game chasing them around our own end.

If you're pleased with 3 quarters of a period comprising the sum total of the time you looked like the better team -- I'm actually quiet jealous. Watching hockey must be far less stressful for you. Don't get me wrong, I understand the injuries and I'm pleased we came out with the win, but it's not one I'm pounding my chest about.
