When the other team is playing well, and you are currently giving big minutes to guys like Aaron Johnson, Matt Bartkowski and a rookie on D, how dominant do you think they're going to be?
IMO they played as well as they could play with that lineup last night. Rask was clearly fighting it and the lines were trying to build some chemistry, and they still managed to outplay and eventually beat a playoff team playing with confidence. I thought it was impressive. In terms of effort it was there for 60 minutes.
Maybe we should hire the Ottawa senators coaches as a consulting firm(poor Excuse)They have looked bad for quite a while now. I guess they deserve credit for squeeking out a win last night to an inferior team. If they go on a 3 to 4 game winning streak, and Lucic is contributing I will feel better. People seem to be acting as if they just won a playoff game.
