Agree with everything else you said except this. Defense is not the problem, and wasn't tonight. They just didn't capitalize on offensive opportunities. Murphy has been playing terrific as of late, I'll agree it wasn't his strongest game, especially holding the blue line in the offensive end, but his play defensively wasn't a liability tonight.

Strange of have a night where we lose because of the offense, but that was the case tonight, coupled with the bad PP.

Quebec played hard defensively, I have no issues taking a lose to them in January.
