Not the worst game ever but this was the worst extended stretch of play since the Blackhawks game last year and that's the only game that is in the same zip code last year. The 3rd goal was a little fluky but the fact that we played 25 minutes like that with our back goalie and got a point is one of the few encouraging things to take away from this game.
I'm OK with this game. We got a point, at times looked absolutely dominating with our back-up goalie, who reeks in the shootouts. He didn't look great in regulation on the second (maybe) and the third (definitely) goals, but he is a back-up. Lundqvist can't play 48 games and the team can't play full speed ahead every minute of every game - they'll have nothing left for the playoffs, like last year.
On another topic, what does everyone think of Miller? I think he is a future legitimate NHLer, but I would send him down. It's not worth wasting a year of his ELC if he's just going to bounce around, play the odd shift and ride the pine in OT and the third period. It's a short season, and I think Kreider is more NHL-ready.
