Generally the team played fairly well if you don't count the fact that they didn't score any goals. They had a lot of time in the offensive end, forechecked pretty good--got numerous great chances. Unfortunately this seems part of the script we've all been following since the season began. Forcing the issue--getting frustrated--breaking down here and there occasionally on defense etc. etc. Montreal scoring 47 seconds in on a freaky goal set the stage. This team doesn't know whether to **** or wind its watch.
Yup, agree with this. I think you can directly correlate the teams lack of success this season to the number of times they've scored the first goal, and to their road record.

They actually looked pretty good, but could not finish the good opportunities they created, and breakdowns cost them goals against.

Zuc looked good, I hope they re-sign him assuming he keeps playing like that. Creative with the puck, played hard, even won some battles along the boards and threw some big hits. Looks like Tortorella liked him too since he gave him 18+ minutes
