One too many for the Jackets and one too few for the Nux.
Down by two goals both on the PP at the 6:50 mark of the first period.
5 penalties by the 11:30 mark of the first period.
Not a happy start to the game, then they have to dig out of the hole. Were the first few penalties questionable ? Perhaps. But this team must be aware that they can not afford to start many games in this fashion.
Offensive players don't get into the flow of the game. Too much pressure on the PK unit and the somewhat depleted D.
Pyatt playing over 21 minutes with a re-arranged dental plan and no morning practice. Kudos.
4 games until the break and onto the push for the playoffs. Need some points, boys.
