Nice job Granatool....either you're trying to embarrass Raycroft tonight or you're just so frikking 'hopped up on Peyote' that you haven't even noticed that he just doesn't have it tonight. (anyone would have seen that after the 2nd goal)
- Razor didn't have much of a chance on the 1st goal, a little more of a chance on the 2nd, and should have had the 3rd, but I'm sure he didn't expect Ice Turd (****head, whatever you like) to let his man just waltz around the net like that
- I'm eager to see how Granato plays Arny, I wouldn't let him on the ice again, he refused to play the game of hockey on that 3rd goal and hasn't produced offensively despite a great setup by Tucker on the PP
- Tucker with another good game, he's not getting on the scoresheet that often, but he's drawn a ton of penalties, occassionally made some nice hits, and showed his toughness by taking about 5 good blows to the face in getting his nightly bloodying
- The team just looks a little complacent after those 5 wins
- Joe looks bad; I think he's having trouble adjusting to the wingers (a problem we saw the past couple years when Bruno wasn't on his wing), which finally leads me to
- Jones hasn't looked good, Joe/Wolski at least need to have Svatos on the wing for a while if not Hensick
One other thing - loved Lappy standing up for Hedgie - according to the Jackets feed Boll went after Lappy after he was interfered with after the faceoff. Just caught up to the 4th goal on the DVR, wish me luck as I go play Madden.
As much as I dislike Clark, that 4th goal was not his fault. He had coverage responsibility for the Columbus guy next to the crease, and then a pass went right to the scorer in the slot - which left Clark screwed in no-man's land. Wolski or another forward is at fault for not picking up that 2nd slot player.
At least one good sign from the coaching staff is that they didn't make a player available for an interview for the second intermission in a row, so hopefully they are having a good meeting. I'm sure Foote is having some words with the team. I think we'll see Budaj to start the 3rd here too.
