Nash couldn't save us in this one. Didn't really see much of him tonight, thanks to the 2nd period penalties.

I thought he did. The Pominville pass came off a Richards special (no look giveaway), and his line was on ice for the second goal too.

I'm just going to sum up all of this in one post and be out for the night.

Hank let in soft goals, buyout Richards, Gaborik is a ghost, Del Zotto can't hit the net, trade Stepan for 5th and 6th round pick, Boyle sucks, bad penalties, power play is ****, Biron's 5 hole, trade Nash for Dubi and Arty, Callahan has hands of stone, McDonagh is staring out into space, Girardi blocks too many shots. Oh, and fire Torts.

Did I miss anything?

I ***** about a different player every game. Today it is Lundqvist and Gaborik. Next game it will be someone else.
My point is, number of saves doesn't equate to quality of saves. Lundqvist faced the tougher chances this game. If Enroth faced 50 shots, Lundqvist still would have faced the tougher shots this game.

McDonagh and Girardi were that bad. The rest of the defensive core was that bad through the first two periods.

I do feel that the Sabres would have had 3-4 goals heading into the 3rd, with the chances they got, if it wasn't for Henrik. That's why I think your expectations were a little unrealistic.

That said, it is what it is. You're entitled to complain about any player you would like to (I know I do).

Its becoming a serious problem. Our Point men are not good, under pressure, in the ozone. It really is crippling the offense.

Its a big part of our system...

Del Z didn't have a bad game though. Its guys like Girardi and McD who just make the worst decisions with the puck..

Girardi, especially, I hate as a pointmen.

McDonagh's shot power is about the level of a PeeWee player. Add that one in.

Well, the "good" news is, we're playing about as "well" as the Kings did last year until the end.

Why isn't Stralman on the point? More than adequate defensively and has a nice slapshot to boot.

Yes. I agree. But the problem is that we disagree on who outplayed who. I liked our game tonight, for the most part. We played an OK game. Should've won it or at least got it to OT if Hank even has an average game for him.

Enroth played out of his mind in comparison to what he usually brings. Just the breaks. He had to get out of that slump at some point. Figures it is against us, right?

OK, brah. Let me know the next time you even think Lundqvist had an AVERAGE game. Even when I have posted that in the past, you just go ape **** (no pun intended). It's hilarious.
