A few things.
We cannot chastise Biron so much. You get what you pay for - he's not a promising young guy who is on a rookie contract and underpaid, he is a veteran who earns what he's worth. We have to accept goals like the third one are just part and parcel of who he is. He did enough to not blow the game, defensively we cannot be that slack in front of a backup.
Why does Gaborik constantly get put forward for shootouts? It's not a coincidence that he's good on breakaways and sucks on shootouts. Stop putting him up there.
Put Hank in for shootouts, night off or not. Pull Marty with a minute left and put Hank in for the shootout. He is the best of all-time statistically; he must go in there, as unconventional as it seems it is totally logical.
Brad Richards is playing like a man who will be bought out. This was his worst game, and it was unacceptable, but have any of his performances so far looked worthy of $6.67m? No.
Usual coaching issues. Boyle, whilst not terrible, should not be getting put in the lineup in the middle of a win streak, what the hell was that about? Lived up to his name as a defensive centre as well, since his line spent several long shifts in their own zone without the puck.
Stepan, had a decent performance by his standards. But he does not have the ability to do things on the fly and it will prevent him from becoming a bonafide top 6 player in his prime. This league is not designed for people to take a touch, look around for a second and then move the puck.
