still missing the point. I am not talking specifically about THIS game.

with better goaltending, we would have covered for some of the teams lapses, all season long, and won more games… or looked at from another viewpoint, perhaps the team has always been mediocre, except when playing in front of a goalie of Rinnes caliber… and only when we don't have a great goaltender is that mediocrity exposed.

so yes, this game was lost by the team early, and my point all along has been, that the very nice but ultimately futile comeback last night won't mean anything unless the team has finally figured out that it needs to play like that all night, every night, so they don't have to rely on a stellar goalie which we obviously do not have
