. The few times that we actually went to the net, we hit the post - scored or the refs whistled it down early. Bishop didn't have to make very many difficult saves. The guy is 6'7, he'll stop those point shots/perimeter shots all day. We had plenty of time with the puck, but other than 1-2 players, no one was willing to pay the price in front of the net. That's why we lost. We lost the same way vs. the sens last time. They do a good job at taking your space away, so unless you fight for it - you won't get quality scoring chances.
Again, turn off TSN and watch a full 60 minute game. We had more than our fair share of scoring chances on those 45 shots. Posts don't count as shots on net. Galchenyuk had at least 4 scoring chances alone, and Gallagher had a really good one on a tip going to the net. The posts were just just icing on the cake.
Yes, shots dictated how the game was played. And we dominated in both respects last night. Anyone who didn't see that is either blind or didn't watch the game.
