The effect of not having Hank in net is huge and not for the reason that most of you would assume when I say this. The defense has been completely unwilling to get up on the forecheck all game because of Marty in net. That combined with the fact that the whole team is completely soft on the puck tonight explains the 1-3 deficit. Our forecheck is at its best when our defense is engaged and I haven't seen more than 1 or 2 significant pinches this game. **** this schedule. What is this like 8 games in 11 nights now? Tomorrow's game is gonna be a clownshow
No we haven't. We've piled up the most points. But if you watch you know we're not nearly the best. Just a good team having a great year which is starting to even out. The joke my friend is you if you think that this team is the best in the league. It takes 82 games before you can say that and then a second season. Do you really think we're going to hold off Pittsburgh? We will end the season outside the top 5 in points; book it.
We lost the last game, so that means we're going to lose ALL THE REST OF THE GAMES! Global losing is true! And it's dark where I am and has been getting darker for a few hours now. Global Darkening is real! No more light forever!
Firstly, Biron won't sniff any playoff action. Second, the team aside from Biron showed up tonight. I'm not even worried. Biron has been brutal for a while now I'll admit..don't know what's going on w/him
So sick of this stubborness. Team not doing good? Change the lines. Rinse. Repeat. Grind more. More jam. Rinse. Repeat. How about try and get to the slot? Put a team with more skill out there? Nope. Change the lines and grind. Yep....
