The main issue was Smyth and the only reason he jumped is because Kopi gassed himself chasing after that puck to save the icing.
That line would have changed for the Poni-Handzus-Simmonds unit to play against the extra attacker had they been able to get it out but they just couldn't clear the puck.
I just disagree. The only player on the ice that has any level of fitness and mobility was Stoll. The Scuds / Greene pairing made no sense because they both have no puck sense. You put that type of combo when there is a draw with 2 seconds and all you need to do is eat it. You need players that have a high level of athletic endurance because the geezers are undoubtably gassed and are already slow. You need players with vision. The only guys I agree with was Scuderi (need either him or Mitchell for a half pair) and maybe Stoll.
