I hate to draw up excuses but the boys are beat up and tired. They really are and its quite evident. Toronto that game at night, going into to Ottawa middle of the night early game (seriously who thought that one up?), trucking it back to Winnipeg to play an extremely physical team in the bruins, then like 1 real day later they play a team back to back.

We have played 11 games since the 5th, that a game every second day. You add a ton of travel to that, and you get this result the best thing Noel could do, beside get rid of Wellwood and increase Burmi's ice time and take forwards off the just let the guys rest. Do film and crap for like a week.

Playing NHL hockey every second day has to be horribly punishing. Add our ******** travel to that package and you have to beat your fatigue along with another team every night.
