I can live with everything but the lack of heart and fire. No excuse for that. Eller was bossing people around, then Pac's reckless hit takes out McD, then the crowd is doing the damn wave, then the contact with Biron...just shameful. Don't yap in someone's face, go after them. Throw punches. Look like you care.
I am embarrassed; not by the score. By the lack of balls. And there's only one person to blame. Until now I've defended Torts against his detractors. But he has to be fired. After Paccioretty left his feet to nail McD, he has to be attacked. Plain and simple. The fact that Mash is playing and Bickel and neither of them were sent out there specifically to break Paciorretty's face is inexcusable and Torts is done as far as I'm concerned. There's no redemption. He is a ***** and that's all there is to it. And then Biron gets run and sissy Mary Boyle doesn't even drop his gloves. Those two Boston ******s need to be sent packing because they are embarrassing all of us.
While Lundqvist was not in net, THIS is why I don't understand the shot blocking mentality. At certain times, block shots.
Down 3 with a couple minutes? WHY!? It is an unnecessary risk. Torts goes on and on about how "we block shots". Well guess what, no-one cares. We have Lundqvist, we don't need to be blocking every single shot and risking injury.
