Prediction Correct!

Yes, I finally got one right! I'm 1-12 or so this season. Starting the streak up. :)

They were Dumb. Because you have to be very dumb to give 11 PP to a team who have the kind of firepower Atlanta have. PK is costly regarding team's energy level. The defensive play was terrible and Alberts, for one, look horrible on a bounce puck. On the same play, Thomas didn't look better. I hate to say that but there's too many " stopable " pucls who ended on the net like the second goal and Hossa's breakaway. Even if i admit that breakaway is not the best thing for a goaltender; sometimes, you have to make the save.

Too many penalties + Bad defensive play + Lack of key saves = a loss. Let's wish that we won't see this equation too many times this season.

From the Globe:

General manager Peter Chiarelli, in town with the Bruins yesterday before leaving for today's GM meetings in Toronto, liked the improvement shown over the recent homestand and is still committed to evaluating the team for 20 games before determining whether any deals are required.

If it's the true, you kiss goodbye a playoff spot.

I didn't see the game. Neb, how was the officiating? I saw on the score box that PJ got another unsportman likeconduct??? 11 PP in the same game is enough to kill any teams...

i thought the officiating was "new nhl". at least 3/4ths of the calls would not have been made before the lockout. that being said- the players should know better by now and it was poor decisions by our guys to take that many untimely pentalties.
goaltending would seem like the issue at first blush, but the team in front of tim t let atlanta get off 21 shots in the first period alone. they plain got outplayed by a better team.

on the bright side - for most of the second period the boys skated with or looked like the better team. unfortunatly the same can not be said of the first and third periods.

lastly our top players missed the net on prime scoring chances on at least four occasions, off the top of my head i can think of pj,bergeron savard and sturm all closer than 25 feet, open and with control of the puck and the puck hitting glass....that has to stop to beat the top teams.

I actually don't want to make the playoffs with a team like this. Another year in the cellar may actually do us good. What is the use of getting in the playtoffs just to lose in the first round?

If we finish poorly we can pick up another good draft pick and build. Let's face it, we have some key guys locked up for a few years. Another shitty year will not hurt us in the long run.

The officiateng has been really inconsistent. For the three games prior to TB the officials called very little. And then suddenly they call everything for two games! The only thing that saved them against TB was that TB was just as bad.

Regardless, the players should know better by now. It shouldn't have taken 11 penalties for them to figure out how the game was being called.
