Did Smyth do anything to deserve getting extra ice time and 2 shifts in a row? Also that was a pretty stupid penalty by Whitney to take. And don't get me started on Dubnyk. What a horrible horrible game by him.
The only thing that the coaches are teaching Yakupov is to panic in the third when up. Yak should be out there getting experience and confidence in those situations. We **** the bed every third so the coaches have no excuse to not play Yakupov in the third period. Instead he'll double up the vets with dinosaur legs and play to lose.
