you know what, win or lose, MUNN
Not the best game by Hank, but the whole team was not in it like in past games. Oh well, just one not so good game. It's not like our next game is in Montreal, right???
stop all this irritable reaching out after fact and reason and accept the complexity of reasons why we lost.
Never been a fan of trying to block shots while close to the goalie and was always coached to not do it. It takes you off your feet, you screen the goalie and recovery is too slow. That is twice Girardi got burned by doing that...
@AnnoyingJoe Okay, I can sleep easy now. Goodnight all!
No man. It was defensive mistake that led to the 3rd goal.
@AnnoyingJoe I gotta go, but can stay for one more.
Yes plz :)
@JustinRP37 him and DZ can go out to dinner paid for by me if they don't step on the ice
@KreiderisTheChosenOne its not the NFL and it isnt March. relax
@AnnoyingJoe She keeps wanting me to get in the water with her, but I keep not being able to. AAAArgh!
Yup Talbot would have shutout both teams... Our defense was below average in both games. Call it what it is!
@Say my Name Think about it.
they lost on a personal level ... just didn't bring it like they have been ... focus a bit faulty ... but you can't win 'em all, and it's a search to put all the pieces together
@AnnoyingJoe Hank saves that shot at the end of the period we win this game... simple as that
Why? He is an average backup goalie. He will have a bad game soon. If he was god then the Whale/Pack should have won a Calder Cup. Not sure Talbot would do better here.
... and the puck bounces around during that slow recovery and there you go
@JustinRP37 yea but to the caps... so worst possible outcome
@JustinRP37 Its in Montreal
