    G: Played well enough to win

    B: but the PP sucked

    U: Winnipeg played for 5 minutes in the 3rd period and that's all they needed

    Massive 2 points dropped...sigh

    Couldn't solve Hellebuyck


    Sucks man. That win would've recouped our Carolina loss. Instead, we're back in the ****ter.

    Good: loved Hutton in this game. Smooth and solid. Let’s hope that Hutton is back to stay.

    Good
    The young guys

    Bad
    Why don’t we play Pilut when we need mobility and offense at the end?

    Ugly
    The veterans

    G: Team played well overall. Okposo looked more dangerous than normal.

    U: Scandella out there with a minute left. Drop passes. PP.

    At this point all the things wrong with the team come down to coaching.. our system sucks. We're a 6-8 seed were we to have any sorta creativity, but teams know our simple system by this point.

    edit- Guarantee the drop pass is Phil's thing too. "Always worked for me, no reason to change!"

    didn't deserve to lose this one but we gotta cash in on those Pp opportunities. Refs were good for a bit but all of those picks... It is frustrating to watch a team get away with that much blatant interference and get a game winner on one of those plays

    Also a very good rebound game for hutts. He was trash for a solid month and a half before this game

    Im most frustrated that Botts/Phil refuse to ice their best possible team every night.

    Maybe didnt matter today, but maybe Smith/Olofsson get a goal that Vlad/Pommer/Okposo never will

    Yeah, we simply dont deploy the correct personnel / don't have the talent to win games against upper echelon teams (on a consistent basis), period.

    B
    Eichel: Had the goal, but not dangerous otherwise
    Skinner: Disappeared

    U
    Dahlin: Worst game of the year for him. Handled the puck like a hand grenade tonight

    Maybe this brings us a step closer to firing Phil, that's the best thing to come out of this game. Also, why even bother pulling the goalie? It seems like everytime we do it kills momentum and bites us in the ass. Leave the goalie in there and play aggressive instead of pulling the goalie and having guys play back to protect the net.

    I mean it, someone in that locker room needs to say something about the officiating. Take the fine, call them out and hold them accountable. I don't think I have ever seen a run of games this piss poorly officiated, and it has cost us more points than I care to admit. That **** needs to end.

    The more I think about it the more I want to punt the drop pass into the sun.. it has it's place, but it is not a system in and of itself. Yet that's all they do. It's all they know. 4 pylons on the blue line, 1 guy weaving his way in- it doesn't work. Stop doing it. Housley, get these guys making passes beyond center ice. They're NHLers, they can do it, but Housley has the creativity of a bad accountant.

    The Good:

    Hutton getting off the schnide.

    The bad:

    The short handed goal and the lack of marking on the gwg

    The ugly:

    Pominville's high heeled skates

    G: Housley will eventually be fired.
    B: He isn’t fired yet.
    U: He was hired at all.

    Yep. And as we all kind of knew, it's not good enough against the NHL elite. That said, we play like that and we beat most NHL teams most nights.

    All it took was 2 lapses and we were cooked.

    They simply must beat both the Islanders and the Rangers.
