If somehow this team makes the playoffs, we are going to do a lot of damage. What an awesome game to watch tonight, but the few errors we committed the Pens capitalized on. Pricey looks a bit shakey still, but I doubt it's anything more than a confidence issue; he needs to track the puck better.
Boy what a difference Kovalev makes, or a lack-of... Pleks and Kostitsyn tearing it up and he's MIA.
I like to think of it as though the back end of the team was losing the game faster than the top line could win it. Those boys looked knackered by the end of this back to back. We may have ended up with two loses but a big to the boys on that line. Pretty much the only reason we were close in the last two games.
I have a funny feeling that Halak is going to play next 3-5 games
He should have played tonight, even after Price's excellent outing yesterday - back-to-back and Halak was solid as of late, give time for Price to build on his good performance. These goalies are being so mismanaged, it's not even funny.
Offense, but it can't keep up with the goaltending.
We need a real D coach, and someone other than Carbo because his "system" DOESN'T WORK! We have seen games lost time and time again for bad line changes, bad line match-ups, giving too much time to 3rd and 4th lines, constant line mix-ups making chemistry impossible, never using a time-out, forcing an offensively built team to play a "defensive" system that leads to errors because we don't have the players to play this type of game and they mess up.
I could probably go on but seriously, what else needs to be said.
At this point, true or not, everything that Kovalev said or didn't say, well he should've said it live somewhere. Some people are just about to find out that Kovalev might be the least of our worries....
