I don't think its as bad as some are making it out to be, but going from their performance the other night against Nashville to this is dissapointing. Having said that the score should be 3-2, not scoring on those 2 post with wide open nets is huge (actually 3 but 2 are from the same play).
I know we have problems scoring, but my goodness against AHL defenses we should . With Brodeur in net, a come back from being down 3-0 in the third period would be a true miracle. Very disappointing to watch this team not show up for another big game. We have NYR and Buffalo coming up too . I can't really blame Neuvirth for the goals.
All the blown D coverage and not moving skates aside, if our stars can't put a puck in the net but once every 10 games, were doomed no matter who the opponent.. This heading fast toward our what, 10th (1) goal or less game in the last 15?? Even giving up 3, if we had at least 1 we would still have a shot, but down 3 zip in the 3rd is like rookies climbing everest w/o oxygen..
You guys are such drama queens.
First period wasn't bad
Second period is bad.. Time to fire the coach, gm, owner and start a firesale.
Ovechkin to Anaheim for 2012 first
Semin, Backstrom to Columbus for 2012 First, Mid level prospect
Mojo to NYI for future consideration
Alzner, Carlson to Edmonton for 2012 first and Potter
Green to Dallas for 3rd round pick
Holtby to Edmonton for 3rd round 2010
Neuvy to NYI for DiPietro
am i doing it right guys?
I usually try to avoid pretending that games are worse than they are... I'll continue that trend.
They've sucked this game, though. Including the first period.
That said, we've played terribly and it really should be 3-2. Marty's got some Christmas luck on his side.
