Yeah but hard to blame Pasi or even the D for that lost!
The team was sorely missing Savard last night. I hope he is back on the ice soon, he is as important to this team as Ilya is. Without Savard we have no other dangerous scoring threat and teams are just denying the puck to Ilya.
Ilya set up several chances last night to guys who were just too inept to finish. The Brad Tapper affect more or less. Great passes to guys who can't finish. We need Savard back and preferably one more good scoring threat, beyond Petro who has been playing way above his head so far. Tough loss, but at least we denied Turco the shutout.
With the schedule such as it is in the 2nd half, this team is going to struggle. A playoff berth is a long way off at the moment. We played well last night, but not well enough to win. Five years in, and we've never beaten the Stars..........
