Miller and Kreider looked incredible on the powerplay, I loved watching that, I hope they get another chance because they are close to netting at least one!

bickel has had 42 seconds of ice time, while Gilroy has about 6 minutes I think I saw...wow, I guess bickel is benched already haha

Miller looked pissed, he wants to win, I love the attitude!!!! GO GET IT!!!

Power play is horrendous, momentum killer yet again. How the people in charge on and off the ice are not held accountable is by the far the biggest failure of this organization. We are now rolling out the bottom six players as if that's a solution. It's abject coaching void of ideas and this overlying structure which bans creativity and risk taking in general is killing us.

Positive: That second unit with Kreider and Miller looked really good.

Some people need to stop excuses. they werent luckky goals. We all know Hank cant save the over the shoulder shots that his weakness. The second goal was a nash brainfart but hank has to be aware. By the way Kreider and miller look great together

Can someone make a compilation of our PP fails with the Benny Hill song playing in the background?

That's the point. We don't practice. Other teams show signs of knowing each others playing styles. We don't.

Misread the play behind the net on the first goal, and on the second goal you can't fault him, but you need to make him a big save.

This is one of the worst starts to a season he has had in his career. They need better goaltending out of him to start to climb the standings.

You really going to blame Hank for those 2 goals? Devils scored of a horrible Hagelin turnover and Nash losing the puck in his skates.

Staal needs to bury that PP chance and this game is probably still tied.

Agenda is still going strong, he didn't turn it over in the slot it was blindly tossed at him, in his feet and he failed to clear. Which is something he needs to be able to do... But, since you dislike him and want JM back and to trade for Vanek you blow it outta proportion.

I would give Miller a look with top six wingers, because he looks okay with the puck on his stick and has some poise. Can't be any worse than we've been.There's still plenty of hockey to play and we didn't look so bad when we weren't on the PP.

The PP is absolutely the most damning and frustrating thing about this team. It literally needs to be torn down, dragged out, burned, buried and rebuilt from the bottom up.

As for MDZ... I constantly can't stand him. I called him brainless earlier in the season and took heat because he was 'playing like our best d-man'. I honestly think MDZ is a disaster waiting to happen in most games and it's just a matter of whether it will or not. He has all the skill in the world and literal bricks between his ears.

Mike Sullivan is stealing money. Worst powerplay I've ever seen.

8 mins of bad power play just sucks the confidence out of you.
and then being down 2-0 is the worst.

It's up to Torts now.

And beyond Lundqvist, who needs to be better for us to climb in the standings, our PP needs a complete overhaul. And if that means moving our coveted PP coach, than so be it.

Even if Lundqvist was as inconsistent as he was this season, IF our PP was even AVERAGE, we'd have at least another W in the standings. Fact is that our PP has crippled our come back ability and impacts the momentum in our games EVERY time. Time to go back to the drawing board.

If there's anything this team doesn't lack, it's functional players. A monkey could produce better with the talent this coaching staff has been given.

It's Sullivan's fault that Stepan couldn't shoot into an empty net. Also his fault that Saal couldnt finish.

Lol probably. Explains why JT and Kreider look like they know what they're doing on that retarded Flowerplay.

It's both unfortunately. They don't have natural instinct on what to do. You can only 'coach' it so much.

You can only practice so much, it comes down to the players knowing naturally what to do based on what the other team is doing to them.

The coaching is an issue, and I would fire Sullivan for it because it hasn't gotten ANY better in forever.

We could have the best players in the league and they would still dump and chase. System sucks and teetering on historically inept lows.

Without a doubt. Not been around long enough to learn the dump and chase PP strategy that reigns with the established PP guys. They actually played a possession game looking for that nice chance. Resembled what 29 other teams are allowed to do. Staal shoulda potted one. This PP strategy is a catastrophe. Seems like the strategy is... nothing. Simply nothing at all
