Will that excuse be used if we lose to Ottawa at home? Forget that. Last night should have been a tuneup. What can explain our rather unimpressive games leading up? This one is a culmination of all the ****tiness that's lurked into the Habs game. Time to lay the foot down and clean this garbage play up. I knew it would take some underdog teams to make us wake up. The Isles game didn't do it and apparently the Jackets game too. Now we'll see what this team does to react. Hopefully they harbour all the power of last week's comeback but if we win, we can't ignore the defensive issues. No siree bob.
