That the team won in regulation does not negate the fact that it made numerous mistakes and did across the entire road trip. Luckily, Elliot sucked last night and Pekka was on his game.

The team played an outstanding first period. It played a good first ten minutes of the second followed by an abysmal last ten minutes of that period that carried on through a significant portion of the third. When we lose games, there are still positives in most of them to build upon no matter how outrageous some of the threads here get. When we win, there are usually the exact same errors balanced either by luck or our goalie standing on his head while the opposition is off. Both of our regulation wins featured a goalie having an off night ... we've yet to beat a goalie having a decent night in regulation or OT.

How many nights do you think we can count on 4 goals from 11 shots across 30 minutes of play?
It just amazes me how many people don't see the balance in this. Maybe people just are bored.
We played good hockey for a period, Elliott was horrid, and St Louis was flat.

We won... We're glad we won... but it's not as good as a 6-1 victory might indicate . Hopefully we can put together a solid 60 minutes of Predator hockey tonight.
