especially considering that Yakupov was showing great energy and emotion in the 3rd period too with those two hits on that one shift. Did Yak even see the ice again after that? Yah I just don't get why you would wanna change things up with the lines when things seem to be working fine the first 2 periods. You just gotta trust your players to get it done, even the young ones. Instead of coaching 'not to lose'.. just continue with what made the team successful so far in the game.

This team has handed away far too many points this year. Theres probably like an extra 5 to 10 points that we've just sh*tted away this season. Also Hemsky's play has dropped off quite a bit lately. He's not flying like earlier in the season and lots of plays are dying on his stick.
