We deserved that win
You joking right?

1st period was miserable, 2nd period was tolerable wouldn't say it was a domination on our part, I guess you could give us a slight edge as we did outscore them 2-1, and the 3rd was pretty even even though we outscored them 2-0 mainly because Varly made about 4 or 5 bail out saves including about 3 after we tied it where our defense fell asleep and our 2 goals were fluky one was a shot by O'Reilly that had no business going in Lethonen misread it and was out of position, totally on him and the other took a wicked bounce off the dman's head and falls magically on Kobasew's stick.

If we are playing any team of any quality tonight we probably lose 5-3 or worse, but since we played Dallas a very mediocre team we come out with a lucky 4-3 win.

It you are expecting us to win many game playing the way we did tonight then you are setting yourself up for misery.

Taking 6 penalties while only getting 2 PPs will lose you pretty much any game if the team has a credible PP, starting every game down 2-0 isn't going to win you many games, relying on some fluky goals isn't going to win many games, asking your goalie to make 6-8 point blank saves a night isn't going to win many games, switching your line combos 4 times in one game isn't going to win you very many games, playing dump and chase every possession isn't going to work. The list can go on but I'll leave it at that for now.

Don't get me wrong I'm glad they showed some heart and played harder after ******** the bed the first period and then pulled out a win as I rather get wins and play better than tank and get a top pick. But if you think playing like they did tonight will get them more wins I feel bad for you because you are setting yourself up for failure.
