This game was pathetic. Although I don't know why anyone is really shocked by what's happening with this team. It is February after all. Every year it's the same thing. After the all-star game we play like crap.

Only twice in our history have we won more than 7 games in the month of February. (We have 4 so far with 3 games left)

Only twice in our history have we won more than 7 games in the month of March. Though last season we went 11-5-1. But it's not like we have a bunch of easy games coming either.

In our last 10 games we are 4-4-2. Only Edmonton, Colorado and Dallas have done worse than us in the last 10 games.

We're now down to 6th place and falling fast.

Yeah injuries are a problem with this team right now. But really, there is no excuse to play the way they did tonight vs Cbj. They didn't have anything going. Trotz even said during the first intermission that they were having problems getting going. This is a division rival in a playoff battle and they came out flat.

This is now 2 games in a row that it took over 10 minutes into the first period before we even had ONE shot on goal. That's ridiculous. We will never score if we can't get the puck to the net.

And it's total BS to give up so many goals in the third period. We put 3 shots total on goal in the third. CBJ scored 4 goals. Even if all 3 went in, we still would have lost.

And I'm so sick of hearing that they have to learn from this and move on. They're fricking professionals, grown men. If you haven't learned anything by NOW, you never will. Why the hell do they need someone else to get them pumped for a game? They should know what's at stake. They all say they know it's going to be a dog fight, but where is the fight in them? They play up and down to their opponents. They had a chance to come out and put some doubt in Columbus, but now they think they have a chance and on Sunday could tie us.

They are bound to have a stinker game every once and a while, but they haven't played well since before the all-star break. The offense is beyond cold. Pekka has to have a shutout to give us a chance. The defense has been only half decent and OB has played like a butthole lately (keep your damn stick down and away from guys heads!).

Instead of waiting for someone else to do everything, or trying to do it all individually, they need to start working together as units and just find a damn way to win a game.

PS. Welcome to the NHL Jonathon Blum!! Congrats on your first game!!
