The Kings played last night exactly how the Jackets need to play to be successful. Every time a Jacket defenseman went in his own zone to get the puck, there were two King players there disrupting creating turnovers.

On our PP, the Kings were on the puck forcing the puck carrier into a mistake, not sitting back waiting. The Jackets do not have an answer to that type of play. Some games the Jackets pass more cleanly than others and are able to breakout before the forecheck establishes, and on the PP are able to beat the pressure. Not last night. Bob played well enough to give the boys a chance to win. In the end we know what we are, a team that can't match the effort needed on a nightly basis. A team without enough skilled players that if the work isn't there, games like this are the norm.
