Yea, but you can't blame that goal on Eminger....even though he looked like he was lost.
I don't see how that was Eminger's fault and I'm not a fan of his. He collapsed on the open guy, while Erskine started to follow the guy behind the net who he wasn't going to catch, then was caught not covering anyone with Eminger stuck in the middle.
Erksine was lost on the Buffalo goal. At least Eminger was covering his man.
Our forwards offered no help on that goal. They were spinning around and the dumped the guy to Erskine who was on the far side of the ice. The slug circled from behind the goal right as Ernie got there and dinked it off 44.
I am more concerned with the Buffalo PK than our D pairing. I think we need PP goals to win in this league.
I really don't see the reasoning of starting Erskine over Jurcina. I know Jurcina hasn't looked the greatest this season, but in my opinion he has looked better then Erskine. I really liked what Erskine brought last year, but this year he seems to always be making stupid decisions.
Eminger tried to block out a forward but offered an easy target to bounce the puck off of. Kolzig was there Erskine closed and made the guy shoot, Emmy was just standing in the crease by the far post with this back turned. It's only their first period together in 9 months.
