I don't think anyone here has mentioned the innocuous fact that were getting completely dominated by the Sens in faceoffs.

How many times in a row did Zenon Konopka win a huge faceoff against guys like Richie or Boyle, or Dubi? ZENON FREKIN KONOPKA... dominating us in faceoffs.

How many times did we have a PP faceoff in their zone or an icing when their guys were gassed and they get a critical faceoff win. How about the PP goal we gave up after Girardi got high sticked and Spezza knocked out in the 2nd? Faceoff loss in the D-zone.

Sure we may have been better than on Monday in faceoffs but damn, I didn't realize how brutal of a faceoff team we were and it's killing us. All the little things that aren't working well for us are magnified 100x when you can't win a big faceoff (i.e getting pinned in the defensive zone).
