As bad as the effort and heart has been. Biggest blame has to go to Little, Ladd, Wheeler, Kane, easily. Those guys should take a hard look in the mirror, as pro athletes, call them selves go to guys.... They should be ashamed, embarrased.
More proof, if the players themselves were unaware, that the team needs 60 full minutes of that third period urgency. It's been a couple of weeks since the entire team put in a 60 minute effort - and look where it's got them. Hanging onto third place by a thread.
However, they're still in third place, and Washington and Carolina actually have to win all those games in hand.
