Jones is a rookie he'll make mistakes but they didn't end up in the back of the net even strength as he's +2.
Special teams is what is killing this team. Even strength we haven't looked that bad. Maybe PP will look better once Forsberg and Stalberg get back. Hutton hasn't looked bad either. PP goal against but he's made more saves then Pekka.
My homer side had high hopes for these first 2 games.
My realist side knew they would struggle to find cohesiveness even before the Bergs were lost to injury. So I have just been looking for positive signs since the first period.
Our special teams need lots of work as others have noted. Jones has been better than I expected, as has Ekholm. Even strength there have been flashes of very strong forecheck play and puck possession.
The good news is there is now game video against a first rate D club to breakdown. Hopefully the staff can work with this, get guys in a room and figure out what to do. Pekka? Wow got to figure out what was going on there. He did not look like the same goalie I saw a week ago.
