GOOD NEWS: The offense looked pretty good while 5-on-5 for most of the game. They were putting pucks on the net and creating a ton of chances. The score could've easily been double what it was at the end of the first period.
BAD NEWS: After a pretty good first power play, things kind of fell apart. Shoot the puck, shoot the puck, shoot the puck.
GOOD NEWS: Jaro Spacek and Dmitri Kalinin were both fine, more or less doing what they need to do.
BAD NEWS: Henrik Tallinder and Toni Lydman were not good. What's up with that, guys? Those A's weighing you down? If there's supposed to be 4 guys in front of you and there's only 3, there might be someone behind you.
GOOD NEWS: Hank and Toni aren't going to play that poorly very often. If the other d-men pull their weight things should straighten out some. It really, really couldn't get much worse. (I'm laughing at Ryan's post-game conference: "I expect to get certain coverage. I really haven't had a chance to talk to anyone yet." That's Miller-speak for "The defense blew chunks tonight and they're getting a damn earful as soon as you guys leave.")
BAD NEWS: Turnovers, turnover, turnovers, especially late. Oh, man. Guys, no matter how great you are with a stick, your chances of taking the puck through three guys are slim. Dump the puck and chase it.
GOOD NEWS: All the guys interviewed during the post-game show - Campbell, Roy, and Miller - stepped up and said, "We made some mistakes, we didn't play the way we should have, we'll do better."
Lindy during his postgame conference: "Our defense didn't play well and our forwards turned the puck over too much." Lindy doesn't pussyfoot around, God bless him.
