Great game with very good pressure and offensive zone play. I really like the Moser - Wilson - Stalberg line!! If we hadn't put 2 pucks into our own net, we would be looking at heaidng to the 3rd trying to get a shutout!

The only positive I see in the own goals is that they resulted from our defenders trying to break up passes ... bad outcomes of attempts to help the team. We're not seeing pucks bouncing off d-men just standing there. How many times do we see our guys do those exact same plays and it pay off? Unfortunately, the risk part of the equation is kicking us in the cup ... hard.
Preds 2 - 1 vs the Ducks.
Preds 0 - 3 vs themselves.
Our defense knocks two past Hutton. Ellis then passes to nobody and it turns into a Ducks goal. The words that best describe my reaction to those plays is not suitable for HF. If they do it again vs the Bolts, the world will hear me on TV.
We don't have anyone with a scorers' instinct for the puck. Rebounds galore and can't corral one to save our lives. A few missed calls didn't help. Couldn't bury the chances we had. And why can't we carry the puck in on occasion? We have a couple of guys who can do it. On the pp especially we shouldn't be dumping the puck in.
At least we are getting a break from the mediocrity for a couple of weeks.
