Terrible. No idea why this team can't complete passes.
I could swear I saw someone on the board yesterday arguing that "clutch and grab" hockey was a thing of the past in the NHL.
That first period would say otherwise. Good to see the brutal officiating continuing.
And Whitney? OMG hang them up man. Its painful to watch him trying to skate out there. I hope for his sake that it doesn't hurt as much as it appears to when he has to pivot or skate backwards.
Penner looks really unhappy. Looks like a different person out there.
And speaking of looking different ... what happened to Petry?
Petry's banged up a bit. Had a few days off earlier in the week. But young d-men have ups and downs too, and he's no different.
J Schultz was also dinged up and still doesn't look right. Still very ginger and cautious.
And Smid hasn't looked right to me since the start of the year-- he usually has such a long, powerful, smooth stride, and this year he's been skating a LOT choppier and slower than what we're used to seeing, so I'd be surprised if he didn't have a lower body injury too.
