So in puck battles that we win in first two periods we lose in 3rd as young players tend to get mesmerized with game on the line pressure.

With RNH out, and Hall looking white as a ghost there wasn't much hope in keeping all lines humming tonight.

Hall looked just ill by the second and third periods. Quite a trooper but probably shouldn't have played.
haven't checked out the thread yet, and only watched the third period,
but this is about the best (and nicest) way to explain the the 3rd and OT.

Oilers are the not ready for prime time players. sorry for all you people who got overly excited about a meaningful March game. the oilers folded for you in the 3rd period.
the only time I wasn't expecting a goal against the Oilers the whole time was when Hall was on the ice.
It would also be nice if DD would make a big save in the 3rd period to protect a lead. he does have a 10 cent head and horrible positioning.
