3rd period blues

They were leading 4-2 in Columbus and ends up with 1 point. They leaded 4-0, last night, in Chicago and barely escaped with 2 points. Brad Stuart comments, after the game, says it all: " I don't know what we were doing "...

I like the way the team is winning and his credible ascension in the standing to get that precious playoffs spot. The more it goes, the more Brad Stuart become a giant at our blueline and his signing is a priority more then ever. That said, the team seems to fall in their early season bad habit: 3rd period collapse. In fact, they didn't collapse but one day, maybe tonight, it will happend.

I'm puzzled to see the B's playing 20 or 40 minutes of solid hockey and then sit and wait for something to happend. Honnestly, our goaltending cannot take that kind of abuse; nights in, nights out. You can ask your goaltender to make the saves he should but you cannot ask him to say your a** all the times. Thomas is worn-out because he have to save the day, in the third, too many times. The guys have to step up ( for Thomas ) and realise that there's no substitute for a good 60 min effort. Thomas save the B's, last night, but there's a limit of what a goaltender can do. I wonder when the guys will learn their lesson. I though they did in Columbus...

If they keep it up there going to be in for a long night vs a good offensive Nashville squad with a rusty goalie, who hasn't started in 28 days

Again Dave Lewis doesn't call the timeout. That's what it's there for, to stop the other teams momentum.
