Yeah I knew it was going to be a lost so I didn't even get my hopes up and I stayed home.

Could see the whole season unravel over the next three games.

Good luck Yotes.
Well, to be fair, the yotes have had some bad runs and trouncings as well without being a "not fun team to play against." Sometimes crappy games just lead to more crappy games rather than a big statement game.

Is that a reference to a movie? Otherwise it kinda goes over my head.

I don''t get all 'the sky is falling' comments. Let's not kid ourselves - the Coyotes are no match for the Ducks at this time. Hiller is in the zone right now - 13 consecutive wins - and they have so many players that can (and will) hurt you offensively.

After all the #FREEGreiss comments... he certainly let in a shot that he would want back (Vatanen / 5-Hole). After that it felt like he was somewhat hung out to dry halfway through the second period; the sequence showed how talented and potent the Ducks are offensively. Penner, Perry & Getzlaf seemed to have the puck on a string for a while and the Yotes were running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

*IF* the dogs could make the playoffs, I sure hope they don't have to take on the Quacks in the first round. With the way the lads have been playing for the last 20 games, the playoffs seem like a long shot anyway.

Losing against the Ducks is no shame. The losses against the BJs, Wild, ... are what hurts. Maybe a road trip can give this club a much needed spark?

Well, for me it isnt so much about the loss. Its about the way we lost. Yes, Anaheim is a superior opponent at this time, but we can't just roll over on our backs and die. We got a fortunate early lead and from that we should be able to play more tight, to play solid defensively and make it a tight game. To many sloppy plays and mistakes. This is not how a DT coached team should act when getting that early advantage.

Yes, I get that the Ducks are rolling and have more skill, but getting beat to every loose puck for long stretches was inexcusable. What bothered me were the mistakes and lack of hustle. This performance closely resembled a Gretzky-era mess. We're not quite there yet, but close. Regarding rolling over, why not throw a hard check when it's available, and maybe wake the team up. The Klesla "fight" doesn't qualify, either.

That's funny....... I think it's one of his best games in some time now (got the lead out of his ass and looked like he wanted to be out there, IMO) and you see the above.
