I too recall that many of those pinches ended in disaster. Was that when Marc Staal was being pushed to jump up into the offense more often? Anyway, looking at teams that do the pinch well, they have such talent that not only does their risky behaviour mostly result in glory, but if they screw up, they have a fighting chance at getting back fast to make amends.

Tonight, I was totally disgusted by Richards on the second goal, and his lethargic action.

I'm tired of thinking about this team right now. They are missing some key players, but really, what's the excuse? They look like something the dog threw up.
