The final shot total, whatever the hell it ended up being, was a complete crock of shit. I don’t care what anyone says, we didn’t have very many quality chances that Markstrom actually had to make a tough save…frankly the only one that comes to mind was the one Halpern had. Everything else was shot right into his chest, or, if you’re Michael Del Zotto, 45 feet high and wide.
This was nothing less than a God-Damn disgrace.
You heard me. This was unacceptable.
People want to say crap like, “trap game”. How the hell can a team fighting for their lives fall into a trap game? They aren’t that much better than this team. We, quite frankly, suck right now compared to them.
Why? Because they seem to give a shit about winning, playing hard, actually giving a rats ass about the jersey they wear. Right now this team seems to sleep walk through long periods of time, and when they do play well, they aren’t actually creating anything other than cycling the puck leading to low percentage shots from the point. There are no quick passes leading to 1-timers, it’s always cycle, cycle, cycle…then…NOTHING.
