Looked more like Zetterberg tonight...

Our top line had chances... That was our 3rd line

As good a goal scorer as Frolik is, he's an even better passer. I'd like to see what he could do with Stillman and whoever once Cory gets back.

I really think it was Zednik.

Chances, yes. But chances don't count on the scoreboard. You can't score 1 goal and expect to win. Sometimes you'll get a shutout, but not every game.

He'll turn it around, but there's really no need for the "reality" check since we were being pretty realistic.
I'm not calling you out specifically. I'm referring to the talk around here always about how Matthias needs to be called up and play on the 1st or 2nd line. The kid hasn't been top 6 in the AHL and has struggled. No other team would call up someone in that position that is a respectable organization.

Well, he has been doing that for a while, maybe he knows what he is talking about.

Just got back. We should have won this game. We dominated the 2nd period with chance after chance right in front of the net and could not finish. I knew at that point this game was over and sure enough, the Devils score. We hold them to 1 shot in the 2nd and still couldnt take advantage of it.

Finally the weight is off Frolik's back. What a shot on that PP. He should have had 2 with that missed chance point blank earlier. We should have had 2 points tonight, instead get 0. Cats MUST rebound in Boston.

It irks me to no end that he's struggling so much down there. He's better than that, everyone was hoping he'd be up here making a difference, he's not even making a difference down there. He'll get his head around it, he did last year.

That Amerks team is definitely in trouble. It might even be better to have Matthias up here. I don't think I'd have any problem with him taking the spot of McLean, Pelts, or Dvo.

Matthias plays well every NHL game, even the one he played this year. He's been known to suck when he gets demoted (Like he did when he came back from the NHL last year but then dominated shortly after)

Bou and Olesz can't score us a big goal in the 3rd period in this game when they get ample opportunity,but P.M. and a guy like Gionta (who is overrated in his own right) get big goals.

I hate this team on nights like this ,when he have just as much talent on the ice as the other team in a MUST WIN/SHOULD WIN type game
