Dubnyk also wears the goat horns in this one. Absolutely deflating goals to give up at the worst possible time, he does this way too often and his good numbers masks that deficiency.

Hall had one of his poorer games in a while. He just didn't seem into until the OT for some reason, i expected more from him in a big game.
Does Hemsky even care anymore? WTF was that in the shootout? Brutal.

Just an ugly loss, i couldn't care less about the "loser" point. It's inexcusable that they can't ever hang onto a 3rd period lead. **** you Krueger.
Were you even watching the game? He was our most effective forward on the rush today, had 2-3 great scoring chances.

He's being misused on the PP - he is at his best when on the left-side boards setting up on the half-wall - you can't just slot him into Nuge's spot and expect him to be the same player.

The shootout move was what it was - it's worked 2-3x for him before in the past. I'm not going to let a missed shootout goal speak over a player's body of work over a 60 minute hockey game.
