Yeah, honestly going into this game I would have taken a point. Of course after the first period, it would have seemed unacceptable but well, I'm not surprised.

"Being tired" is no reason to be watching the play from 4 ft away and doing nothing. He looked horrible and didn't get involved at all outside of flopping on the ice.

He looked like a 3rd pairing dman tonight.

Want to hear a better one? Someone suggested to sit Markov and play Kaberle instead, for a few games.

What happens if Gallagher returns Saturday.

No way will we see Coach Mike put Gionta off the 2nd line. Does Prust go down to the 4th? Gally's with Eller and Chucky?

Who sits?

Then why doesn't the coach give more ice time to the guy who has been given ice time of a 6th dman (Subban)? Why is Gionta getting so much ice time? I said this earlier...Markov should not be playing as much. We need to keep him fresh. PK can play big minutes, why have his minutes been drastically reduced?

Gio on the point is not about being tired

flashback to last year...another blown lead, playing scared vs. inferior opponent..forgot the fore-check...

good news is we got a point, bad news...diaz, gionta, markov, etc....need to be better.


this should get the team's attention vs a hungry rags team saturday

I'm getting the same vibe from Gionta as I did with Gomez - "fine player at $3m, not worth anywhere close to his cap hit". He's playing like absolute garbage. I'm not even sure he knows how to pass the puck anymore.

Bouillon on the PP - how long are we going to let this continue? 0 powerplay points despite enormous PP time per game.

Wayyyy too many times we left the slot wide open. Tavares' breakaway in the first, and all the Isles goals except for the 1st...come on.

Nice to see Cole-DD-Patches start to click like last year. Right in time for the Pleks line to go cold, I guess.

Anyway I had a feeling this one wouldn't be easy, and it wasn't. Sucks to say "at least we got a point" against one of the worst teams in the league but the way we played for the most part, we didn't even deserve one.
It also doesn't help that we can't win faceoffs

Very classy of you, but I disagree. Your boys deserved to win and outplayed us. Enjoy the 2 pts amigo.

MT owns the loss tonight. He outcoached himself.

Just play PK for Pete's sake.

Huge fan of all of those players but JT is head and shoulders better and it's going to stay that way. I have JT as the 4th best forward in the league.

I'd take Cole any day of the week over Gionta. Heart doesn't account for crap-all when you play like Gionta has all season. Bourque had a bad game too.

Please, this loss is on the coach and his in game adjustments that did not happen.

The D's were skating back and back and back and back.

This was so easy to enter our zone.

Seriously I think that only Bouillon and Subban played a solid game on defense but they weren't used in crucial situations,

Not MT's best game for sure.
