I still can't figure out if he is a defensive minded coach or what. He was hired back when Lou/Devils made it a prerequisite to be a defensive minded coach in the organization. He really has no system, and the games sometimes look like what ours did under Maclean. Too many goals against, and not enough goals scored. I don't wanna hear about shooting percentage either. How many times have we been able to say ''Wow look at that robbery he played fantastic tonight!'' at the other goaltender?
Yeah this team is pathetic, and it might just be time to shake something up if they drop a third straight tonight.
I bought the stream. They have played well. Larsson was without stick for half a minute during the last delayed penalty, a forward really should have given him a stick. I haven't heard the goal being announced though?
I think it is cause I almost forgot about him until today.
This team needs to practice shootouts EXTENSIVELY in practice. Half their games wind up in shootouts, and sometimes they can't even get a damn goal in the shootout. What's this now as many losses in the shootout as they have in regulation? As I've said since they were 0-3 in the shootouts, I'll still say now at 0-5 in shootouts. These shootouts losses have been the difference between being at or above 500, and below 500 like they are now. If they were 3-2 in the shootouts, or even 2-3, things would like a lot better.
While the team obviously did a good job to finally score more than 1 or 2 goals, they did a poor job defensively. All 4 goals against us were scored by one of their players who was uncovered in front of the net. 3 of the 4 goals were scored by a pass from behind the net to someone uncovered by a Devil in front. These shots are almost impossible to be saved by any goalie. The 3rd goal was very similar as the pass came from the side of the net to someone not covered in the slot. I have to say that both Kinkaid and Frazee have been very good this season and neither of them have given up many soft goals. If not for them, this team wouldn't be in many games at all.
