Why was Plekanec on the draw in the Ottawa zone? The whole reason for the Ottawa goal began from the faceoff loss... it was a horrible loss too. Plekanec didn't even touch the puck and Ottawa skated away with it.
If Plekanec wins the draw, or even if he doesn't lose it so cleanly, then the puck doesn't move out of the Ottawa zone fast enough for everything else to ensue.
Pleks is HORRIBLE at faceoffs, he shouldn't have been taking it. Bad coaching... and keeping Ryder on the ice between icings even when we had possession and he was playing the side closest to our bench.
I'd love to blame the refs, they've been terribad. I'd love to blame Price. I'd love to blame my son for coming downstairs where I was watching only to have Ottawa socre their first goal. I'd love to blame my wife that came to watch the last minute of play.
Truth is, we blame a team that for all intents and purposes decided to stop trying to score for 36 minutes. Is Ottawa that much better than us that they could dominate us for that long?
Man I'm gonna be happy if the habs score in OT but I'll be pissed anyway, this series is so much more difficult than it was suppose to be, now almost out of reach. If the sens score, then I'll be ****ing pissed.
