WTF?

They should've IR'd him and let him get 100% RIGHT AFTER it happened. Who the hell makes their top young sniper, who they just signed VERY long term, play with a broken bone in their hand. Oh, so Horcoff it's okay; but Eberle has to work through it? Was that their plan? What a Mickey Mouse organization.

Belanger is hilariously inept in the offensive zone

Oh, Belanger.

At least he was heading toward the right net ...

Feel like I'm watching a pee-wee game. What a brutal hockey game in general.

Stars aligning to keep it a 1-0 game for the Blues. Every chance we've had has been muffed or blocked.

Rexall ice is garbage.

How many passes have we fanned on out there?

Hemsky and Yakupov seem to have their legs out there. If we are going to score this game, I would bet that it would be 1 of them.

Khabi playing well.

We just have to outscore them in the third.

This is our last game of a homestand though; we should be playing better.

His "finger" isn't why his game has fallen off. Teams have figured out how to stop Eberle - it's a matter of not giving him any space to dangle around or angle his body/puck in away that his hands can do the work for him.

His hands are fine - you see it on some of the snipes he's had on his goals/shootout goals this year.

Teams aren't going to give him that tiny space he needs to make the quick dangles/shots he has, because they realize how dangerous a player he is.

Problem for Ebs is when that's gone, he just becomes an undersized guy out on the ice. Can't really protect the puck too well, easy to body, and not really making much of an effort at either end of the ice.

If his finger is hindering his ability to dangle, stop constantly attempting dangles.

Pretty sure he's capable of dumping pucks.

I know I'm a broken record right now but this is more frustrating than watching Hemsky.

Only Jones has had less icetime than Yak. Petrell with more, Brown wit more, Belanger with more. Kreuger is a joke.

Well when we lead by 2 goals going into the third we always seem
To lose. This time maybe they can get 2 and have a good third period and not go
To over time where they love to lose

He's scoring at a higher pace with the broken finger then. So he's just brutal this year, I guess. Damnit.
