We need some offense. Our puck control/movement on the backend has been pretty poor, IMO it's what separated us from Ottawa yesterday.
What separated us from Ottawa yesterday was the fact that Kessel and JVR contributed nothing offensively. They needed to step up and carry this team to victory and they failed miserably.
