Losing 5 in a row. This should be a spark game. Please Nuge light the lamp.
The kids are suffering from first line minutes as we should have anticipated, but with how... Defensively lacking the Avs are, this should be a high scoring affair. They get worse every game.
So please give us at least 4 goals tonight guys.
5 to 3
RNH from Eberle and Schultz
Belanger from Yakupov and Smyth
Yakupov from Belanger and Perry
Eberle from Hall and RNH
Hemsky empty netter from whoever
Eberle and RNH are going through a significant slump. I hope they're not injured. To me, Ebs always scored and created chances out of shots that should not have gone in or dekes that shouldn't have gone through. For the past little while, those shots aren't going through.
I'm a reader of MC79Hockey's stuff (he must have been a poster here back in the day, although I don't know if he still participates) and he did predict for a while now that Eberle will not likely play at the 6M value that he was signed at. Personally, I like Eberle. With that being said, him and RNH need to put the puck in the net at some point, otherwise our offensive strength will become a weakness.
