I think he takes out Zajac without touching the puck, no?

Would have liked the win but a good result against one of the best teams in the East. Probably one of our better games this season

Get a top 6 winger and I bet a lot of things start looking better:
Well the top line juggling hasn't helped and the fact that he plays so many minutes making up for our lack of a 4th line.

I say we get Henrique back, trade a D for a forward and get Larsson in the lineup.

Didn't get to see the game, but we lost in the shootout to a very good team on the road. In a game we lead until 5 minutes left in the third. How could there possibly be this much to complain about?

Rask may have played the puck and even if he didn't he's making the poke check to get the puck, not to trip Zajac, I don't think you'll see the shooter get that call, even if the shooter should.

O ya. Almost forgot to mention that, he looked really good with his puck possession for multiple shifts. I don't consider him a straight ahead kind of goal scorer though so I dunno bout him in the shootout, but he is going to the dirty areas and playing a tough, gritty game. Have to love what he's doing right now. His puck deflections are amazing as well and have been for several years now.

But really need some more forward help on this squad. It is the root

This is a game where we need more offense. It's not because we didn't show up, it's not because we got outplayed, it's because we really can't score. The same guys mainly Clarkson, have been scoring every game. Our 4th line from the playoffs have been our 3rd line this year. We haven't had a stable 1st line, or really 2nd line.

Help is on the way with Henrique, but we're gonna need a little more help. The defense this year has been better than last year, the goaltending so far this year has been excellent and much better than last year at this time. The PK is as good as it ever was last year. The PP is just as bad!

We need more scoring I think to compete with some of these teams. We've done alright so far, but we could use some more badly.

His puck control has always been that good

He has just always been in a grinding role in the corners and on the boards where he displayed his strong puck control

Now he's one of the top guys counted on putting pts on the board and we're able to see him have more puck possession rather than dump and chase

All in all I'm very happy with a point, but we are gonna need more scoring here pretty soon. The defense has been phenomenal, the goaltending, the PK.

All I wanted was a point out of this game, but I would like 2 against the Isles who are playing well.

If he doesn't get a piece of the puck first that shouldn't be allowed. He didn't even come close to the puck. They might not even have it in the rulebook because I've literally never seen that before, where the goalie takes out the shooter before he can shoot. Then again I've also never seen a do-over in the shootout because the home crowd's got a moron in it (at least that was the correct call, a definite distraction).

Zajac has been playing too tense the past couple games, hasn't looked comfortable

Frustrating game. Good to get the point but VERY disappointing not to finish a 60-minute effort. Analysis from Jeff O'Connor...

I think its the LW on that line. He was fine offensively when Zubie was on that line

They haven't had a real line this season yet. It's a damn shame really. Add in Kovy who can't be fresh playing upper 20s each game and you're left with a troubled EV line.

The goalie has to be allowed to try and make a save. Otherwise the skater can just slowly skate down the ice backwards, force his way into the crease and jam it in.

I don't think we "sat back" that game. We just got beat up a little and couldn't make that play to finish the game off. Boston is a good team too and a much deeper one at that.

Yea this pretty much. But very odd he still hasn't registered an assist yet.
