Let's face it, last night we dug a deep hole because Rinne's goaltending was brutal. Then we couldn't get throught their neutral zone trap because our forwards turned over the puck right and left. And then we had a few defensive gaffes (again Klein, Bouillon and Blum) to put the icing on the cake.
So, all in all a very crappy performance led by crappy goaltending. If anyone deserves a pass it is Rinne, so I won't criticize him too harshly. I just wish the skaters in front of him would recognize those nights he is struggling and lift their games to compensate.
It was a bad outing. That's about all you can say about it.
I don't know what it is about Edmonton...maybe we don't like their jerseys or something, but we seem to struggle more than usual against them.
Oh well, time to regroup and pick up some points on the road. Interestingly we've been considerably better on the road than at home this season. Hopefully that gets turned around soon (well, not the road record...lol).
it was a bad outing. Thankfully, the preds have the opportunity to make it all go away tonight in minny. as bad as the oil looked in dallas, they were great in our barn. hope we have the same bounce back
