We have Gervias, Foster, Lauridsen, and Gus in our top 6. I doubt that those 4 players will continue to play the way they did yesterday. Especially the young kids, they will struggle with the NHL like all young defenders do.
Our forwards also played a committed defensive game yesterday. Not saying they won't again, but break downs happen. I won't be getting excited about our team until the defense shows consistency and not just one good game. I have always been a glass half full type of guy, but with these injuries amounting and the schedule coming up, we don't have the most optimistic outlook.
The same could be said before the injuries to Grossmann, Coburn and Mez.
I deride your truth handling abilities
