I'm happy with the overall play, disappointed with the result. Peks has lost his shootout mojo lately (.619 this season before tonight's game, .700 last season, .794 the season before), but, if we play like that game in, game out it isn't a skill he'll need very often.
I agree too with what you said. We got a point could/should have had two but as you said Fasth didn't allow anymore easy ones to slip through. But Smith had the game on his stick and shot quickly and eliminated a great chance into routine. He had more time than he thought and that in a nutshell is his problem. He is chasing the game instead of slowing the game down and maybe that will come with experience. On the play he could have stopped and tried to make a play but just shot. The play that seem to be there was to make a move to the inside. Erat all game long had chances and couldn't lift the puck. But overall the team is moving in the right direction. Weber getting off the snide when the game is said and done is the most important thing and getting back to contributing to the offense is imparitive
We are not scoring many goals but it doesn't inhibit us; we seem to accept it and move on and that in the case against the Shark just wore them down and into frustration abysmal. That is usually the type of game that wins Cups anyways and the sooner a team learn to accept their role in that system they continue into the next round and the next etc. We are the modern day Jersey Devils not with the trap and all but play defense and captilize on the other teams mistakes. We get chances and we can create our own chances but most of the time we can't finish. Fisher has become the Culprit this year and joined Erat and Legwand and SK. I think we are one offensive scorer away from being a solid team.
