The 5 on 3 was by far the most pathetic PP we have had all year and there is no excuse not to score there. Were was Ryan Craig? He sat on the damn bench the entire time. That was beyond pathetic.

Every Lightning mistake last night resulted in a goal for the Ducks. It was a game that they really should have won, or at least came away with a point. FINISH YOUR CHECKS GUYS!
True, but we've been pretty terrible at 5 on 3s lately, and the Ducks really worked well on the penalty kill.

Yeah, but Kunitz with just a desperate throwing the puck in front shouldn't have gone in. A goalie's job is to bail out his defense if they make a minor mistake like that. Not turn a harmless and desperate centering feed in to a goal. If you want to give Boyle some blame for that goal, I'm not going to argue with it...but the majority of the blame should go to Denis. That's not a play where the puck ends up in the back of the net.
I agree. Boyle should have cancelled him out, but Denis should have hugged that post for dear life. It's much more Denis' fault than Boyle's. A shot from behind the net should have ended up in the goal. Boyle took him enough out of the play not to get a clear shot on goal. It was Denis' fault.
