Defense was brutal, too. Malik gets worse by the game.
Lundqvist was excellent but the two goals he allowed were awful. How can he stop blazing slapshots by Kovalchuk and a Hossa penalty shot all game long and then give up a dribbler and a shovel pass? Very strange.
Powerplay hit a new low. Couldn't do anything on a 5-on-3, rarely put any pressure on and during two powerplays, they took a penalty about 15 seconds into it that cancelled it out. Although that is partly due to a horribly officiated game. Since I was in the blueseats, I couldn't tell as well as watching on TV, but that penalty shot call looked pathetic.
Overall it was a pretty bad game and reminded me alot of the effort put forth in years prior to last season. I think the all-star break is coming at the right time because this team needs serious help on offense and in alot of other aspects as well. There is no reason this team should be playing the way they are.
Didn't see the game, sounds ugly. This is starting to worry me bout Henrik, I mean playing great is great, but if you let it bad goals, you mind as well let in good goals, stop the bad ones, and be an average goalie, IDK, thats just my take on it.
This Malik **** has gone to far. Bench his ***, he's horrible!!!!
If Prucha played on the 4th?, thats a sheer crime.
How did Pock look, was he noticable?
I defended Renney for a long time, but now its over. He's got to go, this team needs a change.
