DZ looked better than Gilroy, but that's not saying much because he was a mess out there tonight. Once again, his lack of physicality cost us on the second goal, and it seems like he resorted back to the soft play that got him benched earlier this season.
Sauer and McD have had a rough go of it the past few games
. This team needs a veteran defenseman in the worst way. I'm surprised that they've gone without one for so long since Rozy has been traded.
The offense continues to generate scoring chances, but their shots are either wide, blocked, or directed towards the goalie's chest. They broke the 2-goal barrier tonight which is a move in the right direction, but obviously it's going to be a struggle each game.
And, it shouldn't even have to be said, but Hank was an absolute monster tonight. There's no way we come close to winning this game without him.
Are you kidding? Last game against the Flyers McD was a monster and Sauer who had an off night last night has been absolutely solid. Getting rid of slow, lazy, weak Rozi was the best move we made this year. Enough already. If Rozi stays, McD remains in CT and that would have been a major negative.
