Anyway, given the circumstances we were going to need a little puck luck to beat the Wings. The Hodgson no-goal with 0.1 second on the clock and the burrows miss off the bar would have changed the game. Oh well, team isnt playing well but the rest of the schedule this month is far easier.
-Hodgson with another excellent game, once again very unlucky not to pick up a couple of points. Probably had close to 10 scoring chances and another solid defensive game.
-Sedins were our best line as usual but still not their best game. Datsuk is a very tough match up for them, he's just as strong on the puck but far quicker. Next time we play AV will hopefully push a match up with Kesler.
-Bieksa is starting to remind me of the player we saw after he signed his previous contract, hopefully it's just a slow start.
-Sammy and Sturn are a fairly major defensive liability, I realise both had surgery this off season and are behind, but they are just killing us right now.
-Unfortunately we just have too many guys who are either off their game or behind due to surgery. Sammy, Manny, Sturm, Bieksa, Edler, Lu, and Hansen, have all been sub par and when half your team isn't playing well it is very hard to win consistently.
