They got their goal early, but we got the bizarre face off violation penalty immediately following the goal and capitalized like we had to on the PP, to stay in the game and not let them build-up momentum!! Then a little bit of defensive mishap occurs and Kane scores a beautiful backhand that no one really could have stopped, although he should have never been able to carry the puck in that far... But that was the beginning of the end for is tonight!!

We played the last 40 minutes of the game, with our heads basically up our a$$es!! We couldn't pass, no shots on net for 7 and 8 minutes straight, no forcheck, no controlling the puck, and basically no emotion out of the team whatsoever!!

We aren't gonna beat Chicago every time, and definitely aren't gonna beat them 7-2; probably ever again!! But we have got to have more offensive output from our leaders and guys we should be able to count on and do a better job of controlling the puck and with that the game!!
oh the conundrum of having "offensive output" ... our top 6 forwards are as follows with league rank beside them
Legwand 62nd with 25 in 34
Smith 144th with 16 in in 31
Wilson 153rd with 15 in 34
Fisher 188th with 12 in 27
Bourque 201st with 12 in 29
Spaling 208th with 11 in 30
