It feeds the narrative.

''Yeah we knew they were gonna come out hard, so what I did was moved Zajac over to wing, and gave Salvador the second highest TOI on defense. You'll see Harrold back in tomorrow. I thought he and Volchie were real solid cause I'm really just a big giant idiot''.

Schneider did not look better than brodeur

Its only one start, but he needs to be better or Marty should get the lions share of the starts

one game really?

Elias-Gomez-Brian NOW might be an improvement over our offensive lines and I'm not exaggerating by much

also, holy #@$%, brunner had 33% of our shots?!
There was no finish because there was no start - you've got to set up plays to create good chances. I said a while this whole season would depend on the chemistry, just have to give it time to develop.

It lacked the finesse of a much younger Elias, but otherwise yes, even that will do.

I mean yeah Pittsburgh's a great offensive team, but we just got shut out by a BAD defense and goaltender. Good luck trying to get goals against actual defense/goalies.

Why are we talking about scoring when save% is clearly the issue?

Don't change the conversation now that is what I was told all last year and all off season.

Perhaps some of you (and the "experts") are right and this is a signal for the season to be. I just think it's ******** for more than half this board to tout how we have a more balanced team this season for the last couple of months and now after one ****ing game these same people do a complete 180 and think we are going to be trash. **** that negative ********. We saw the same thing 2 years ago. We have 50% turnover on the forward corp and some questionable vets on D to start. Let things sort themselves out before we go down that road, for ****'s sake.

Our defense isn't as good as people think.

The 35 shots that Buffalo allows per game, are safer than the 20 we allow per game.

Chico says no one played themselves out of a spot. Thinks Pete will run the same lines out there.

CHICO!

Does small sample size mean anything to you?

Scoring was a problem last year too though.

Scoring chances are more indicative. Multiple breakdowns tonight and all 3 goals resulted from them.

Correct they played ok territory wise They did stop turning it over towards end so that's good. Moving on. Truth be told first 10 we gotta keep afloat until we are set w lines etc. I think a little more speed tomorrow would be nice though good night see ya at the rock
