Just got home. Thoughts on the night:

-Overall, not a bad game at all. Down Rinne, Weber, Klein, and Forsberg and we outshoot and largely outchance them. Not a bad showing IMO.

-Our PP was the worst I can remember seeing it tonight. Just...wow. Philly would clear it 5 times per PP. Just disgraceful.

-Best player for us tonight: Josi. I swear he never left the ice. Jumped into rushes and made some big defensive plays. He carries the puck up the ice as well as any defensemen I can remember us having, including Suter.

-Best forward: Wilson. A goal, a pipe, and a breakaway. Really looked like last year's Wilson.

-I didn't really notice Bartley, Ekholm, or Piskula, which is really all you can ask from those guys.

-Ellis still thinks he's in the OHL and plays at an OHL speed. He needs to figure out that NHLers are faster and stronger and stop getting clears blocked because he thinks he's back in juniors and can lightly tap it up the middle. I have a new whipping boy.

-Maz is the man.

-On one PP, we only had 4 on the ice for a solid 15 seconds. Not good by Trotz and co.

-Both of our goals were, frankly, weak ass five-hole shots. Not good by Mason.

How so? YOU are the one making accusations without basis. YOU are the one who is making statements that show you do not know the extent of Weber's injury ... that YOU do not know if it altered consciousness, fractured a bone anywhere in his face to include cheek or orbital, if it involved the eye or not.

All any of us really know is that he took a hard shot to the face and left with blood dripping from what appeared to be near his eye. We don't know the true extent of his injury. We do not know if he's suffering from nothing worse than a severe bruise and swelling that makes playing hockey nearly impossible or if it is a broken bone or concussion. In that absence of information, any jump to accusation is based on ignorance ... a jump you gladly took.

The first was good use of a defender as a screen to strip Mason's eyes. The second, Mason needs to have.

Both of their goals were the result of horrendous defensive lapses. Both Giroux and Couturier were alone with time and space to put the puck past Maz.

sorry byrd Ive taken your side a lot lately but there is no way you could know if its a "similar" injury… just because they are both around the eye doesn't at all mean they are similar.. the same apparent injury could be two shifts for one guy and a potential career ender for another

If he was out with a "bruised thumb" or something like that I'd completely understand you questioning his lack of heart. But seriously man he took a puck to the eye..a potential career ending injury and we have no clue how serious it is.

just got home from the game myself and I have a question. I believe we've been involved in 3 or 4 shootouts this year and to my recollection we have yet to score a goal. Is this right ?

Just got back home. Had fun until I knew we were headed to a SO. I hate SO's so much, especially ours.

Plus, I got stopped on the way home by a DUI checkpoint. Passed with flying colors as I didn't have anything to drink during the game. They asked me who won the game and I was on my way.

Also, bama lost. Which is good.

3 shootouts including tonight, no goals. One of three teams without a SO goal to date.

Detroit is 1 of 12 shots in the SO ... Vancouver is 2 of 15.

Wilson shouldve put the game away in OT.

Predators are absolutely terrible in the shootout, that has to change...

Really sucks to stay up so late, only to see your team lose in SO.

Considering how young the team we iced was last night I don't think it was a terrible game for us even if we probably should've won it. Wilson should've finished that break away in OT really and our shootout is just awful. Maz is still playing amazing thankfully. The young guns on D are going to develop still so there isn't too much to criticize on their play unless it becomes consistent mistakes. Really I just want to see more from our veteran forwards.

I'm shocked it was that close. Should have been 6-2 with that roster.

Keys to losing the game:

1. Absolutely horrible and lazy power play.
2. Star player Wilson didn't finish with several chances. Other teams have top 10 picks that finish when given those chances.
3. Might as well forfeit before going to a SO.

Piskula has played 11 career NHL games and is 27. His time is done. Please don't call him up.

Play a young guy and give him experience. Joonas Jarvinen.

Sick of this team. There's nothing exciting ever.

With Klein out 2 weeks and Weber out tomorrow, they need to call Jarvinen up.

This was news to me. I don't remember Forsberg getting hurt. I have seen him playing in OTs and shoot outs for Milwaukee.

Forsberg said he got injured in Milwaukee. May have not been serious at that point but he played 1 game here and hasn't since. Trotz said he knew there was something wrong with the way he played in that game. Can understand why he didn't say anything because it would've meant not getting called back up.
