I still would have had Gaustad take those draws. I don't care if he isn't offensive we need the puck first and he had Yip out there at the end of the game.
I agree with you 100%

yip sucks in that situation and it seems like legwand loses faceoffs on purpose. he is brutal sometimes

On the positive side, no blopper reels or getting blasted on national tv for sucking bad......instead just boring hockey game....lol. Guess if we are going to lose, might as well make it exciting w/ high scoring just please no embarrassing moments like we had in the second game that was just awful.

I agree. If I had my choice between AK or Rads, I would choose AK. He seems to play better on both ends of the ice and hussles and he's also scored more than Rads too in this PO.

I'm partial to AK myself (heck I wanted an AK avatar for the playoffs ) but I think if we only put one in it'll be Radulov. Just my gut feeling.

I would have picked Rads over AK if he didn't turn the puck so much, fall down so much, and only score one goal. I mean he is fun to watch but AK imo is a better overall player.

Well to be fair Rads was doing the falling down and turning over of pucks more so in game two, after the late night out. Agreed about AK being a better overall player though, hope if he does go back in for the next game he can not only create good chances but throw some big hits too.

He must do alot of drinking then cause I have seen him fall down alot and not just in that game. But I got to say he is fun watching skating around everywhere like a madman....lol. It must be frustrating for the opponent team. I know it makes me dizzy just trying to watch him on tv so I can only imagine what it's like on the ice. It helped him in the Red wings game where he had alot of space to do that. Don't think it will work as effective in this Coyotes series though as they don't give you much space/room to skate which tend to lead to turnovers as a result if you hold on to the puck too long. Rads is great at stealing the puck and keeping the puck in our end though which gives us more chances to score which I like alot. It's his defense or lack of defense or hussle I don''t like or should I say the teams lack of defense when he's in the lineup. Guess they spend more time in the opponent's side of the ice when he's out there that they just have a hard time getting back on defense or just get laxed on their defense and end up getting beat by the other team as a result and scored on. Also seems the pace of the game is alot faster when he and AK are in the lineup, which causes us to make slopper plays and poor passing as a result. The first two games were very high paced w/ alot of scoring and defensive mistakes. The last two games were slower w/ less scoring and defensive mistakes.

Erat, Rads, AK46 need to be on separate lines. Gotta be something really unique...

Hornqvist - Fisher - Erat
Bourque - Legwand - Radulov
SK74 - Spaling - Tootoo
AK46 - Gaustad - Halischuk
I really like the looks of this, with my idea switching Horns and Bourque, and Willy in for Toots. A similar type of change should have come in the second period of game 1, though, after that horrible start. It is our time to make the adjustment- this one HAS to be the best yet.

The team had plenty of chances, just didn't bury any. Thought we played well. Knuckle ball puck got by Rinne off of two deflections. Funny how a game is decided by something that silly. Oh well. Lots of hard work to do to win this series now.

If we trade Wilson, we're idiots.

I thought that mods were supposed to be above that.
lol That's the first time I've ever seen a mod tell someone to *****off! This place rocks. lol

Exactly. One double deflected shot after Gill falls along the boards is the only goal of the game .... while we miss so many open nets it was painful to watch. A hard played game that we lost. It happens. It sucks.

I honestly think Gill got his skate yanked by the player who scored. I could be wrong. Gill isn't the most skilled player, but he doesn't seem easy to knock down.

Doan just ran into him while he was in parking cone mode on the boards and fell on his chest. He's big, but he was stationary and Doan was coming in with speed; Doan is also fairly sizeable himself.

What killed me on that goal was Josi actually. Gill is out of the play, Doan coming towards the net, and Josi played it like a 2v1 skating back from Doan to the far post. There was no one anywhere on the backside, if Josi had immediately stepped up and attacked Doan, we'd probably still be in OT in a 0-0 game.

Not a terrible play by him, but just wish he had stepped up.

Phoenix comes into town hoping for a split and that's what they got, They score one goal and accomplish their feat. I support Trotz on his decision to sit Ak and Rad. It maybe wasn't the best hockey decision but it was the best decision even though we lost. This team before the deadline was a good team it's problem was and always will be under Trotz is the ability to consistently put the puck in the net. Even though we won game 3 our goals were lucky and typically every playoff the pp goes horribly bad. The game should have gone to OT because Hornqvist should have scored once at least. For whatever reason we didn't have a sense of urgency to win. This team can look so lackidasical. Fisher scored in game 3 but he has had a bad series. The playoffs are about going to net and we don't get that. I think the ice in both here and Phoenix has been not the best which makes it difficult for the shooter to lift the puck which I think that had to with Hornqvist shot because to lift the puck he over compensated for it and it went over the net. Why not sit SK and put in AK. Sk is giving us nothing as usual. Josi is looking like a rookie like Blum did last year in these playoffs. Wilson for long hiastus is trying to create chances but when your linemates are Spaling and Yip what can you expect and then get thrown into other lines at the end. I give credit though to the Yotes and their coach they are playing sound fundamental hockey and Smith is playing real good...not great! Like Vancouver last year the Yotes are employing the same model once they get a lead and then lay back and see if the Preds can score and they can't. In the history of playoffs there have been a few teams that have come back from down 3-1 and won the series why can't we be one of them and give us more history. We are capable but do we have it in us to do it ...
