Unfortunately we can't afford any more moral victories... unless this spurs us to a five game win streak, in the end this is just another game lost because of goaltending
Uh, it was the D by the 5 guys on the ice that was the problem, not Dubnyk. I don't know too many goalies that make any of those goals go away. When guys are left alone on the back door and the goalie has to go side to side to make a save when the guy has an entire net to shoot in to that isn't the goalie's fault whatsoever. 5 goals went in but how many of them were on DD? Maybe the 4th one? He made the save and moved his skate and the puck bounced off of it. Bad luck. Duchesne's goal was an impossible shot that maybe 10 guys in the league can make. Bad clearing attempts on either 1 or 2 or 3 that led to too much time in the defensive zone.

We've seen this time and time again, it's not the goalies on most nights, it's the 5 guys on the ice that were skating in quick sand the first period. Where was the team that showed up in the third period the first 40 minutes of the game? We had a good opening 3-4 minutes then disappeared until the third period. That's not going to get it done against anyone in the NHL night in and night out. 60 minutes, every game, from beginning to end. We play partial games, that doesn't work.

My question is this, as inconsistent as we are, yet we're consistent in our inconsistency, does that make us inconsistent or consistent?
