Yeah, I was complaining about the reffing to but let's face it;
When your team has more scoring chances (and more goals this game) while being shorthanded than on the PP or even at even strength, we shouldn't be completely pissed. That's atrocious on the team's part.
Tampa played well defensively and we haven't found a solution to overcoming their style of defense. Our players do NOT move the puck fast enough to get rid of the pressure Tampa puts on our forecheck or our wingers when we're along the boards. We saw brief shades of what we actually need to do to correct this in the last minute of the game. The forwards need to draw Tampa down low and we need to move it to the point and move the puck a lot more quickly than what we normally do. Throw a player or two in front of the next and fire from the point. Tampa leaves one defensemen sitting in front of the net while defending, there's no reason why we shouldn't have trouble adjusting to this.
Overall, just disappointing. Frustrating as if we lose on Tuesday we're really screwing ourselves over with losses like this.
