Man, it's about tie we beat ya's 2 in a row! You guys always had our number for the longest time but hey, i'll be cheering for ya's whan ya play the Vancouver Cansucks! Go Nashville go! Good luck the rest of the season guys!
Ugh. Dominate the first few minutes, give up a goal and look like crap. But the 3rd pd was much better, where was that effort after we gave up that first goal and the second period?
Who or what do we have to sacrifice to get Arnott, Dumont, Erat, Legwand to score a goal?
We did have 40 shots so it's not like we're not getting shots or chances. Kipper did make some great saves but still we should have been able to get a few more by him.
I agree...sit deVries. He was awful. If Weber wasn't out I would sit Zidlicky again, too.
2 turnovers by Hamhuis led to odd man rushes leaving deVries back to "defend" which led to 2 goals. If deVries defends better, at least 2 of 3 goals don't go in and we still have a chance.
Radulov played well. He deserved that goal. It was nice. Finally a PPG on the road.
I thought Legwand played well. Not great, but pretty well. And Suter, too. Really with the exception of a few guys they played fairly well, not good enough to win but not that bad that we should have lost 5-1.
Why does Dumont look like he's afraid of the puck? Instead of going to the net with no one in between him and Kipper, Dumont chose to PASS!
A Flame takes a shot and it bounces over Mason's shoulder and into the net. Legwand takes a shot like that on the 3on5 and it not only bounces over Kipper's shoulder, but also the entire net!
I only blame Mason for maybe 2 goals.
But hey it's not all Mason's fault. Since we can't score more than one goal then Mason basically has to pitch a shutout to get us a win. We've only scored 3 goals on the road in 5 games. I just don't understand how we can't score at all. It's not like we don't have the talent. It's just not going in at all. Hopefully it's coming and I think (I hope) that when it does come it will come in bunches.
I didn't think Calgary's announcers were all that bad. I fully expected them to have some kind of crappy comments about the team/sale but they didn't and just told it like it was, that deVries had terrible coverage, Mason made some big saves and played fairly decent, Radulov is a good young guy, Weber is a stud that we really miss and we deserved a better fate.
Looks like a lot of people went to sleep after the 2nd. I fell asleep on the couch, woke up for a second to see it 4-1 and was out for the night.
Weber get well soon, everytime Calagary was coming down the ice I was looking to see if DeVries was on the ice. He looked terrible on Iginla's first goal, although Mason did overplay expecting the puck to go all the way through to the far guy.
It was funny to see Trotz breath a sigh of relief after Radulov scored thart PPG.
You'd think a guy lid Zidlicky who has taken a few shots to the head for concussions, wouldn't be dishing out elbows to the head. Zidlicky seems to be playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder.
Good news is Vancouver is 1-5 at home so far this season.
Plainly, we suck.
DeVries-- does Atlanta want him back? He is awful, must be a -10 at this point (too lazy to check).
Arnott, Legwand and Dumont need a long hard look in the mirror. They are just not producing. I frankly don't get it. Is it Trotz's constant juggling that throws them off? We can't expect Rads to carry the scoring on this team yet, he is not ready for that. And say what you will, two of the first three should have been stopped by Mason-- Calling Mitch Korn!
I am reluctant to waste another evening watching right now, and won't if a better game is on CI.
