Rebound Control.

Elliott does not have it.

Outside of the two brutal turnovers, the Blues skaters are playing a fairly decent game. Elliott seems to be fighting everything, but so far just the one bad goal. This game is still very much within reach.

Gotcha. Just wondered, I couldn't tell that anything was edited in my post, so I was wondering.

Another ****ing turnover! We really don't deserve to be in this game right now.

Why wouldn't they just extend the bench some rather than make the back up goalies sit by themselves?

schwartz needs to make more of an effort to get that puck, he probably still would not have got it but he didnt even reach for it

The Stars could funnel a puck on net going 2 MPH and I still think it's going in.

longer benches means less seats along the glass

Berglund needs to find another level this next period or I am jumping back on the hate on Berglund train. He has all the tools to be dominating every shift but has no drive. He would be unstoppable if he worked like Oshie.

Elliott is incapable of handling the simplest of shots right now. The team can't play with much confidence knowing how bad he is right now

And take out a few valuable seats that Dallas fans aren't buying tickets for. Not a chance.

Elliott's rebound control is awful, it's like he can't hang on to anything.

that line only happened because Schwartz got stuck on the ice with Berglund and Stewart when the Stars had the Blues hemmed in. That said, the line looked fairly dangerous mostly because of Perron who is the best player on the ice today for the Blues.

Wonder if Elliot realizes that he has a leaky five-hole?

It seems like whenever we have lines that work well together Hitchcock changes them. I really am wondering is this season coaching is a problem.

Probably was hooked or was late on his shift.

By my count there have been 4 bad turnovers so far this game, with 2 leading to goals (1 of those goals was soft), a third leading to an odd-man chance deep in the zone, and the 4th not leading to a significant scoring chance. Two of those turnovers happened late in the first, and two happened late in the second.

The rest of the game has been kind of ugly to watch, but there are encouraging things to take from it. The Blues forecheck has been effective, and they've generally kept Dallas from generating any momentum through the neutral zone. They've also done a good job with their in-zone defensive assignments (not losing people on the cycle and the like), and have generally kept the amount of good scoring chances to a minimum.

Offensively, the Blues have created some ES chances off the cycle (which has been a problem for them this year), and have had some shifts where they've hemmed Dallas in for extended periods.

In a lot of ways, this game reminds me more of the Blues from last year than most I've seen this year. It's a step in the right direction, anyway. The Blues need to find a way to reward themselves for what they've accomplished with a few goals and a win.

Having clips of Elliott in that ad of the greatest Blues goaltenders of all time kinda backfired.

Elliott truly is fighting everything. He has zero confidence.

It's frustrating. Last year and coming into the season I liked our team and felt we had a strong group of players, and no real dead weight on this team. Well now the bad players are apparent. Elliott, Redden are the obvious ones, but Russell and D'Agostini are just not good and really provide nothing good out there on the ice. D'Agostini is so useless and one-dimensional (and doesn't even use that one-dimension so really he's just invisible) it's aggravating.

Reminds me of Andy Murray.
