that was brutal.
buffalo absolutely owned us behind the goal lines at both end. they also absolutely owned us when it came to clearing the puck - they did at will, and we never did. we were completely outworked and outmuscled, and by a relatively small team at that. as for palffy and visnovsky's injuries, i think that they were purley a product of laying back and allowing the other team to get physical with you. not that on those particular instances palffy or visnovsky should have hit the other player first or anything like that, but i think that when a team sits back and avoids contact like we did tonight, and allows the other team to dictate the physical play, that team becomes a team full of targets, and viola, injuries.
