Let's be clear: he didn't get a lot of help, certainly not from Jones (who had his worst game of the year), but Dubnyk did not play well. Holden's second goal was entirely on him, and he knew it. I would argue Hejda's goal was, as well, because getting beaten glove-high on the short side like that is pretty bad. Those two don't go in, maybe we're talking about a different hockey game.

The rest of the team came out flat, got better after Trotz chewed them out and dominated the last 15 minutes, but the defense and goaltending had dug such a big hole by that point that it didn't matter.

Nobody needs the Olympic break more than Jones. He was standing around watching instead of covering Landeskog, had a bad giveaway right in front of the net, and to top it all off, he got victimized by Stastny on the clincher. Most guys have a game or two like that every year, but he looked really tired and unfocused. The two weeks off will do him good, but we still have nine games before we get there.
