On that late 2 on 1 in OT that Wheeler blew the goalie probably would be expecting the pass more anyways than Wheeler shooting!

You can't really blame Little when a forward is the only one back and there are two Caps players breathing down your neck. The puck went off of a Caps player.
Agreed. If the defence is anywhere near where they should be, that pass goes to a Jet first and gets cleared. Did I mention Buff was coasting in?

Yeah, 1 goal in 22 games isn't good at all, Wheeler need's a trip to Newfoundland to regain his confidence in the AHL.

Okay we get it, seriously..... seriously.

You apparently missed Wheeler's great pass that allowed Little to score.

I think sitting Wheeler for a game would be a much better kick in the pants than constantly putting him on different lines. He has some good moments like that assist but otherwise does little to contribute. No confidence

I'm pretty sure Little's late clearing attempt went off Johannson's stick into the middle of the ice there as he was trying to go boards.

Didn't catch the middle part of the game what happened to Burmi, only 7.5 minutes?

I agree, that's what it looked like.

Benched. Likely for the 3rd goal against which I believe was his fault.

Playing 18-20 minutes a game you should pick up a few assists, especially when you can't score or check!

On a 1 on 2, you'd hope no matter where you cleared it one of your three players would be the next man back.
