I know his D core was beat up(tired)
; but you can't play like that and expect your team to bail you out(three in a row).
It's not so much that they were "beat up" as they just weren't coached well enough. Towards the end of the game (or was it the 2nd intermission?), I was really, REALLY surprised that Eminger had played only 2+ minutes. That puts a HELL of a lot of pressure on your remaining D. Why even dress a defenseman if 2+ minutes is all you're going to play him through 2 periods?!
