If we learn a lesson and take that away from this...then I'm okay with it...but blowing sizable leads is becoming a pretty alarmingly regular occurance for us. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned.
In years past we owned close games in the third period. We won a ton of games decided by one goal. This season it seems we've lost a lot of games in the third period. We just can't hold on to a lead going down the stretch. Maybe Trotz is leaning too heavily on key players late in the game. I wonder how many more minutes per game Weber, Suter, Legwand, and Smithson are playing this year compared to previous years. Are our studs just worn out when the third period rolls around?
