Luongo was weak.....again. ... another one of those goals that I'm pretty sure Schneider prevents simply by not playing on his stomach in full sprawl.
Hey Eternal Optimist Bed Shitter, nice job in the face off circle from your Mancrush Malhotra against the kid Nugent Hopkins. HE SUCKS LARGE!

Salo has been our best defence man, very steady out there and Ballard has been very good.
4th line had some decent shifts last night and gave us some much needed energy and toughness. But where has Hansen gone? Has he always been a slow starter? He needs to play more like Higgins.
Meds wrote:Luongo was weak.....again. That first goal was the direct result of him laying on his belly again. Sure he made a really nice first save, but if he'd come across with his toe in a butterfly position, instead of sprawling and putting himself in a position that ensures there will be no second save if the puck is even a foot off the ice, that goal doesn't happen.
Meds wrote:The second goal was a deflection, and usually I give goalies a pass on those, not this time. He saw that shot all the way in from the point, it wasn't a one-timer or cross ice pass where he had to move from post to post, it was shot-pass that was obviously designed for a tip, so what does he do.....yeah, he tries to play the grounder instead of getting his body square in front of the puck
