IMO it says it all when you're supposed to be a puck possession team and you can't win face offs and you're relying on dump and chase tactics. Frustrating to say the least and a big part of the reason we spent so much time in our own end. As many others have stated here before me, having goalies who can play the puck is a must with the blue line right now.
