They've both had their awful moments, but these ridiculously bad goals have got to stop. Neuvirth looked like he wasn't even paying attention. Yeah he's the backup, yeah he doesn't get constant playing time, but enough is enough, he needs to stop routine pucks like that, esp. since this team can't score most nights.

Not that weak of a D core, just not the right personnel to play a d first style. It's still shocking to me that BB and now DH have tried to run complete defensive systems, with so much offensive talent up front. Its not that hard to play both defense and offense, especially when it's clear DH's man to man system doesn't seem to work very well.

You know your purse is way to big when you can pull a down jacket out of it. Thank goodness my Wife hasn't caught that stupid fashion bug.

I think all the guys will be finding the altitude affecting their game. It usually takes at least 4 days to get at least a bit adjusted to the thinner air.

Serial Question here.

Do Semin and Ovi have a bonus tied to how many curl and drags they use?

I can't remember the last game I saw this much flubbing of passes/dump-ins and players falling down for no reason on both sides.

Ice must be horrendous.

So why doesn't Ovi go to the right side more often now? He's like a completely different dude when his pucks on the outside shoulder.
