It wasn't the biggest problem, but it was a problem.

Kesler is really hurting this team with his play. He hasn't looked good outside the power play. How many pk goals has he been on for out of curiosity?

Also not that Lu is playing all that bad, but the last 2 goals were saveable. The third one was as well, but the 4th one shouldn't go in and the 5th not sure why he fell hopelessly instead of pushing off.

Again, why did Luongo go down though?
Luongo went down because he expected the shot to go through the pile of bodies but it hit Garrison's skate in front and bounced right to Brunner in the slot. The problem wasn't him going down, the problem is him not getting back up and getting over to Brunner. He chose the easier save selection and stuck his glove out instead. He probably expected Brunner to shoot right away but being the smart goal-scorer he is, Brunner held on a bit and roofed it.

Agreed. I would put in Schneider just to give Luongo a mercy pull. I'd have Luongo back in next game, and hope that this team gets shaken up by a change in net. We played like **** offensively and defensively that period.

Did Kassian say something to a ref?

Luongo hasn't been good today.

Having said that, why must we always find a singular person or thing to hang blame on? It's been a fire drill in the defensive zone, Luongo hasn't been sharp, our special teams has been bad, and the officiating has been horrible.

Add that up, and we need a big third period.
