Yup not the team to lose to. Earlier in the season when we lost to them they were doing GREAT. Now not so much. 5 more times vs the Rags, 3 more times vs Boston, 5 more with the Penguins, 4 more with the Flyers, eh.
Just seriously win. Also maybe just maybe we can go 30 seconds in our zone without giving up a goal?
One thing we have going for us is we haven't lost to the same team twice yet. We've lost to Washington, and then beat them in a shootout after a comeback the next night. Marty didn't play very good last time against Washington from what I remember.
This also the first team this season that we will have played 3 times.
Hopefully Elias is back to close to 100%. I hope so. Sucks about Clarkson. Can't wait to see who else wakes up tomorrow on this team with the flu. I don't wanna wish sickness on anyone, but can it please not be Parise, Kovalchuk, Zajac, Henrique, Sykora, Zubrus, Salvador, Marty or Moose?
Also add Volchenkov, Fayne, Foster or any other D man to that too please.
No Larsson, Tallinder, or Greene. This D is shot. No bench/scratch/7th D man either. Who gets that call up I wonder? Or will they just leave it alone, and try to get by with the 6 as long as no one is hurt?
I was hoping Tallinder would be back by now, but considering the fact that he missed practice today, that seems unlikely. Having three starting defencemen out of an already fragile group is a huge weakness.
It hasn't been a good past few games for us Defensively or for the Goaltenders. TB, Dallas, and Montreal we still had to give up 3/4 goals to get a win. Moose hasn't looked so fine his last 2 starts either.
