Our horrible faceoff percentage has a lot to do with the decline of our penalty kill since last years playoffs. How many time during last years playoffs and into last year can you remember us losing a crucial faceoff, and on the same shift, sometimes even within seconds it was in the back of the net? I remember it happening way too much.

I'm sure it hasn't helped our PP either, especially when we lose a faceoff and then spend who knows how many seconds trying to get it back in.

This isn't really on Loktionov as he doesn't play the PK. I don't remember him always taking faceoffs on the PP either. It's Gio stinking up the circle on the PK. As much as I love the guy. And to think I gave Patty a hard time for his faceoffs last year, now we have two guys at 35% regularly taking faceoffs.
