It's been awhile that we dominated a full 60 minutes for sure.
Even in our wins against the Panthers and the Sens near the end of the season, we didn't dominate throughout the game and had some moments of letting go.
Unfortunately, I doubt the trend will be broken against Boston. The only thing we can hope for is to capitalize on our chances and not look like a pee-wee team when making passes.
I don't even need domination. Momentum will shift back and forth. I would just like to see 60 minutes of good, solid effort. Three full periods of consistent hockey, playing the system that was so successful early on.
Lately, it's been 10 minutes of solid defensive hockey, and then 10 minutes of pinching defensemen without support. Major brain farts all over the ice.
If we limit the giveaways, this series is not as hard as people think. Just simple things and we can take them. I think the majority of the issue is mental. This will be a big test for RC as to how he handles their mindset, especially phil's
