Amazing how this team can play completely uninspired for large stretches and still get points. They were coasting half the night.
They looked very slow and tired in the 3rd period. I fully expect that to go away after a few games. Remember, they had a long layoff, then played back to back, then another long layoff, all with lots of travel in between. It's going to take the team a few of those every other night games to get in the groove.
Lame loss. Offense looked lackadaisical at times. Quick was on his game at the least. I'm hoping it's just a chemistry issue. Bottom 6 lines look really transparent. I wasn't exactly excited signing Hunter in the offseason but he has changed my mind these last few games.
They were 5 individuals out there most of the night. Couldn't complete two passes in a row, could barely handle one pass without the puck bouncing off a stick. They were fighting the puck more and more as the game progressed, a step slow, and just looked like they got one of those brain clouds. It doesn't matter what system a team plays when the players can't make a simple pass.
