a very forgetable first period....sounded like the entire team was flat...haydar with two turnovers that led to breakaways,finley couldn't pick up a puck..ads outshot 20-6...0 for 3 on the pp...got to get better
unbelievable...absolutely unbelievable...7 to nothing..ads outshot,get this 55-16..
ads team a minus 29 for the game,a minus 29...zanon,yablonski and segal each a -3...7 other a -2...only player not a minus for the night was moscevsky..and he spent 12 minutes in the penalty box lol...houston had 7 guys who had 4 or more shots(jeezus)....we must not have packed our sticks for this roadtrip is all i can figure
I'd hate to be on that flight home.. Claude hates stupid unispired play.. and 7-0 isn't the story, that 55-16 shooting number however, and the turnovers are things that will get his blood pressure up...
I didn't get a chance to listen to the game tonight but I checked the score from time to time... and I could be mistaken... you know, age, and just the plain fact that I need to go to the eye dotor maybe, but I could have sword the penalties listed Simon Gamache with a fighting major?!? WTF is that about? Did he and Yablonski switch bodies or something?!?
this total lack of defense last night is most disconcerning....even though it was just an abstraction,what it does point out is the fact that the ads two best defensive forwards(by far) are pivko and upshall....and it's no coincidence they're both out..add in the fact that suter didn't play last night and you have three of your best 4 defensive minded players gone...kyle's statement last night that they were "resting" suter rings hollow...he was down on the ice twice game before last,once supposedly for taking a shot off his elbow and another when he was driven into the boards...makes you hope it is nothing serious
