Bad couple of turnovers and bad positioning cost us the first 2 goals and the last 2 were bad but it happens
Anyone have updates on Lupul and Frattin return
The offence is dried up and tonight was a night that if Frattin in on the wing instead of Orr they may get 2 or 3 tonight. Lupul needs to get back to revive Kessel. I dont think it's a #1 c he needs more of a grinding winger to dig pucks out of the corners and feed him.
Orr is playing well but he needs to get back on the 4th line and play the energy role and get Brown out of the lineup.
If this team can hang around until Lupul and Frattin are back then you get 2 scoring line and whatever Grabbo line gives you is a bonus
Most certainily...it will be accompanied by a "Phaneuf is garbage" thread another about Kessel's lack of goalscoring and some thread that depicts Scrivens as an AHL nobody. You know the drill typical Leaf's Nation.
A few more outings like this one from our goalies and that tank thread should be at the top of the board. They have to be our best player on a nightly basis.
I mean, we weren't even outplayed or outgunned. Bad goaltending did us in.
And what was with all those penalties tonight?! I'm glad they managed to kill all those penalties but we gave WAY too many chances to a PP unit that is 3rd in the league.
Thought there were some weak calls. Brown's hold was weak and Stamkos was called on a hook I think which was weak as well IMO. The refs (in particular) missed two penalties late in the third against the Bolts which was frustrating considering they threw us in the box all night long it seemed.
Scrivens had a rough night, it happens. Kadri was just beautiful, smashing Hedman's useless face in was brilliant. Fraser ragdolling Aulie and Crombeen cowering behind the refs and chirping Orr was laughable. It was Tor vs Tampa Bay + Refs and we lost. It happens boys. We will go hard next game.
You gotta feel sorry for Crombeen. He just finished having his brain scrambled by Zack Rinaldo.
