If you wanna cross check someone in the back, CROSS CHECK him in the back like you mean it or don't do it at all.
I was upset that the team allowed 36 shots on goal. Any team that allows an average of 12 shots per period deserves to lose. No excuses. No whining about officiating or the fans of teams who are able to generate and capitalize on those 36 shots.
Any coach who cannot establish and enforce a system which prevents this kind of average should be fired.
Any general manager who constructs a team that cannot or will not institutue its coach's defensive system should precede that coach out the door.
