The problem with that is the game was 2-1 at that point, and the B's couldn't afford another penalty.
It's easy to say in hindsight now that the game is in the books that they should've pounded on the Predators, but in a one-goal match with less than 5 minutes on the clock, it wouldn't be the right move.
I agree with Cam Neely- the effort was there. It's a shame that the B's came out on the losing end, but give Vokoun credit. He made some great saves to keep the B's out of the net in the 2nd and 3rd periods. It's very, very difficult to make a one-goal lead standup, and he did it. This makes the loss to St. Louis that much harder to swallow because Felix Potvin couldn't.
Big game against Phoenix on Sunday night to get back on track.
