Early in the game if we are leading... maybe. But late in the game when we're down, forget it.
Secondly, some nights you work hard and the puck bounces your way (Tampa on Sunday). Some nights you get outworked and the puck bounces your way (Dallas last Saturday). And some nights you get outworked and you just lose. The Blues' players had a better night than the players we put on the ice.
We don't have three of our top players. And we lost Cube for 1/2 of a period (does anyone know what happened there??). Can anyone argue that our PP wouldn't be more productive with Goc and Suter, not to mention Lombardi. Think Weber won't be more productive with Suter on the ice with him?? And with Goc back, Wilson moves back to wing and we roll three scoring lines, taking pressure of the HOS line.
With these key injuries, we need a little luck to go with our hard work. This season Lady Fortuna has smiled upon us -- till tonight. She'll be back. And so will Suter, Goc, and Lombardi. When those guys are back we won't need her.
Did we lose cube or was he just playing bad?
