This was a game they should have won, having scored 3 goals, but thisw night was not going to be there's. It just seemed that whenever the guys made a goof getting the puck out of the zone, it hit the back of the net 10 seconds later.
Usually Lou bails them out, but he was not himself last night. The last goal, he should have had, and the 3rd goal he was laid out on his stomach, which is something you rarely see him do. There were a couple of cases where he was slow or weak going post to post and LA could have been up by a couple more goals.
Man did we miss Mitchell. Salo looked stoned out there, Ohlund looked like a heends at least another week before his head gets out of the fog. Weaver looked vulnerable all night. Edler and Krajicek were the only ones who stood out for me last night and even they got burned a couple times.
Shooting more is good. Playing physical and not getting knocked down is better. Getting back to your system and executing it properly is the best. Vigneault's not to blame, unless they don't get back to the system after the break and then perhaps he's lost the faith of the dressing room.
I'd like to think we'll do better against Minny (we have to), but it's not looking too good right now.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League. Live from Riga, bitches...
