To add a few thoughts to the game from Saturday. Two things stood out to me.

First was Riku was horrible. Three of the Amerks goals were easily stoppable, first two went 5 hole (he leaves it wide open). On another he was flopping around like Hasek, and he's not that good. I haven't been overly impressed at all this season with his consistency.

Second thing I noticed was the team's passing. For most of the first part of the year the team would make the short, smart pass. Their transition was seamless from defense to offense. Two or three short passes and they were off to the races. It's gone downhill the last couple weeks, and Saturday was the worst. Too many telegraphed homerun passes, too many blind passes, too many weak passes, and way too many passes right onto the stick of an Amerk. Getting back to smart transitions will hopefully right a lot of the issues they are having.

Finally, couldn't agree more on Oberg, he's awful.
