Next 3 are not AHL D-men.
Bobby Raymond
Mike Ratchuk
Josh Godfrey

+ some signed D-man retired & Patrick Wiercioch is injured.

Add to that not a lot of firepower up front.

Puck stays in the defensive zone way to long.

Only way they can compete is a total team effort 110% & they don't get that every nite.

Watched it on the AHL live. Few comments
Bingo tried to protect the lead and not attack the net.
4 of 6 goals were missed forward checks in the slot. 3 were turnovers where Bingo lost possession in d or neutral zone.
Defence seldom jump up into an O attack.
Boro and Gryba hardly came off the ice and looked exhausted in the 3rd. (Work good together)
Forwards take too many poor angle shots. They had trouble finishing except for about 2 minutes.
In the third they seldom used the points in the O zone and Hershey had collapsed all around the forwards.
DD and Grant played well in the offensive zone. Jimmy O was skating well but seemed a bit rusty finishing.
I can't say it was a lack of effort but they just don't have a sustained attack, poor finishing skills and tried to protect a lead in the third(3 shots)
