What an overall awful game. We had no heart and didn't deserve the win at all. I know we were playing back to back and everything but still, what a pathetic game. Tampa owned us and Tampa should never own anyone.
Basically everyone was garbage but here are some of my thoughts from the game:
-Do we ever miss Spezza and Volchenkov. Without them we do NOT look good at all.
-Brian Elliott appears to in sophomore jinx mode, I haven't been impressed with him at all this season, especially on the Malone and Tanguay goals. Let's hope Pascal kicks the illness very soon.
-Milan Michalek is awesome. I wish he'd bury more of his chances but he is adapting well to a new team. I like him more and more every game we play. Leading contender for the back of a new jersey for yours truly.
-Steve Downie is a grade A punk. What a girl!
-Alex Picard needs to go away, right away. He's awful night after night. I can't stand him.
-Cheechoo needs to sit. He's invisible and brutal out there, except when taking non stop careless penalties. How do you say healthy scratch in Cree?
-Jarkko Ruutu has 4 goals in 11 games, to go along with his hard work and pest like bahvior. I'm impressed
Overall that game was just insanely bad to watch. If we want to make the playoffs, we can't have stinkers like that, especially to a weak team like Tampa. No excuses, excuses are for losers. We better play better on Saturday.
Anyone have any thoughts?
