Just one of those game. The SH goal hurt us pretty bad momentum wise and so did the phantom call on Kovalev.
We did'nt give many shot but we payed for every one of our mistake and our goalies (that I don't want to blame because goal per goal, you can't really fault them) could'nt come up with a big save on a broken play.
too many guys pushing panic button chill...despite garbage d we still managed 4 goals which says something against basically jiggy of arc (he was amazing tonight) and ya i kinda wanted to see plek moved down and lang centering kovy...plek wanted to score so bad it takes away from his damned game...why the **** do we have brisebois in again?
We didn't lose this game because of Brisebois, even though we was absolutely garbage. We lost this game because our goaltending was poor, and we couldn't bury our chances. Halak look flustered since puck drop, and it was evident that Price was feeling sluggish because of the flu after he came in. Add to that Giguere and his massive tent, and that explains why we lost.
I think in general we looked rusty. Passes weren't flowing like they were in the first 6 games, and the defense wasn't communicating well. The reassuring thing is that we still managed to get 50+ shots and 4 goals, meaning that we'll again be an offensive team on the worst of nights.
