By the sounds of it both teams were 'meh' with up and down games and we lost in a shootout. Sound about right?
I'm honestly asking because I was at school the whole time and on the way back the radio crew was just blasting Anderson for the Timonen goal and even got a nice jab in at Bryzgalov. They're a very entertaining group our radio crew is.
This really is the worst case scenario. They are going to lose a lot of confidence this week right before going into some big division games. This season could be over before the new year.
Vinny being out has been huge. Coots and Mason cant carry this team and thats what the past two games have shown. G, Voracek, and Hartnell need to start producing 5 on 5 or this teams isnt going anywhere. The fact that they play like a bunch of sensitive preteen girls and go into funks so easily isnt going to help.
It was insane to begin with that our shutdown line was also far and away our best offensive line.
I don't think they have been bad the last two games, they just haven't been nearly as dominate like before. Somebody else needs to step up & give them guys some support because they're not going to be lights out every game.
Simmonds stepped up tonight but for the most part his line as a whole was pretty average & the first line basically does nothing unless it's on the PP.
