Sometimes gotta stop and think that WE are the team that now has the gunslingers and shooters getting stoned by good goalies. When we're trading chances we should be good, and should be owning. Except for our goaltending which is matching up on few nights.

If we want to make a push its time to sit Dubnyk for awhile who has been flubbing games on a regular basis. Responsible for all 3 GA tonight and got owned in the Shootout. Curiously Dubnyk played well when it was 3-3. He's one strange inconsistent bugger and thats never going away.

Fact of the matter in the most important position in the game you can't have a guy in the cage solely responsible for an average one GA/G. Theres far too much parity and thats going to be the margin of W/L on most nights.

Absolutely we were the better club tonight and win this game if goaltending was equal.
So he's responsible when Fistric kicks it into his own net? And when Petrell deflects it into his own net? Did you watch the game?
