I swear, the one PP looked worse that a Chinese fire drill on New Years Day. Tell me, how the hell do you give up not 1 but 2 odd man, short-handed chances on the same PP, within 30 secs of each other. Totally unacceptable.
After last night I am looking for the offense to get more possession time. They need quality chances and that is something they really did not have last night. And for the love of all things chocolate - stop w/ the behind the back passes!
While I do not have any statistical evidence to support, I would garner that 60% of NHL games are won / lost because of special teams. That number is probably higher, but I am being conservative. The point being, you better have you act together regarding your PP / PK, or else you are going to be in the suck tank.
We almost stole a point that we did not deserve last night. Although we stunk we could have been and have been worse in our past starts. I think Mase gives us a chance to win every night and we do have the firepower to net some goals. The fans normally bring it the first night (before going to sleep except for rival games and the playoffs) so on the strength of that I am calling a win for tonight as the Devils are very Meh to me.
