I didn't think this loss was Krueger's fault at all. I thought the team played pretty well but had they're usual mental breakdowns. Their top end talent on defense is poor. Guys can't handle the heavy minutes and tend to have their lapses, especially towards the end of the game.

And yes I would've liked to see Yakupov more sure, so he didn't get more ice time, but he didn't let those 2 goals in. I thought Whitney's dumb penalty was the TSN turning point. Also, Smitty and the bottom pairing D suck. Dubynk had to stop that 3rd goal as well.

Just a few concentrated moments where you're off your game is all it takes.
