flat 1st period. to many penalties. another game they didn't play the full 60-minutes. lack of scoring by everyone. they can only blame themselves.

the disallowed goal sucks, but it is what it is. you control what you can and then move on. the ref is positioned a few feet closer to the back of the net so he sees the puck is still live and maybe be doesn't blow the whistle. that you can't control.

squabbling over garbage like that is a sign they aren't controlling the pace and flow of the game. frankly it sounds like the crap we heard from PHX fans last year.

until they decide to commit and play the way they did last spring this will be what we see. they have to stop relying on this 'next level' they can ratchet it up to. play like that from the opening faceoff and the rest of the game then goes into cruise mode. wait until the latter part of the game, then its scramble mode.

no scoring now from anyone on the first two lines 5x5. no gravy goals from the bottom two lines 5x5. lack of physical play by them is allowing the opposition to dictate how the games will unfold.
