wow...this team....just wow. Niemi blows it in regulation, skaters blow it in OT. the were playing like they did under Ron Wilson tonight. they got the lead, sat back and tried to sit on it and ended up blowing it...Just a team with 0 confidence. Mark my words this team will MISS the playoffs if they dont find their confidence.
I want the coaching staff held accountable. The power play and shootout choices were awful.
Why was Clowe first? He does better later on when he gets a good look at the goaltender. Pavelski should have gone first and catch the goalie cold if anything. Wingels in the shootout??! Moore? I know the sharks don't have many choices, but why not Burns, Boyle, or the hot Marleau?
Also Boyle needs some time off the first power play. He's trying to do too much and it's killing it. That and there's no structure to it, which is completely on the coaching staff's heads.
Mclellan you stubborn ****!!! Great move choosing Wingels who loses the puck in front of Lethonen, and Moore who shoots RIGHT at the pads!! I swear I like Mclellan, but he's gotta stop being so stubborn. Its not like Marleau wasn't playing well tonight, and Boyle, why was he not shooting!??
The players did every thing they could. Every single player played their hearts out. I cannot point to a single guy that didn't do what he had to do-- yes, that count's Niemi.
I honestly just don't know what to say at this point. We were more physical than the Stars, we spent s ton more time in the offensive zone, we scored dirty goals, skill goals, backchecked like a mother****er, and still we lose.
