After seeing the game live, here are my reactions:
The lines were all messed up after the first few goals. I know Nodl missed a few shifts, and while no one appeared missing, the line combos were straight up bizarre for long stretches.
Bob did not look good. Boosh did not look good, though to be fair, coming in cold and getting little help defensively, Boosh got put out to dry.
No one was covering Stamkos on his goals. He was literally standing on the ice waiting for the play to come his way.
Genuinely horrible defensive effort, outside of the pk. Very little rhythm to the overall game.
We did not play nearly as physically as we needed to.
The Mez hit was totally clean, and the refs did a rather poor job of officiating the game. Many blown calls in this one.
This is gut check time for the team, because of so many games in so few days. Streaks are nice, but they need to learn from this - hit people, hustle, and keep shooting the puck.
Overall, a bizarre game with a terrible outcome.
