I kind of hate that just because Kevin Klein made his first glaring mistake of the season last night, he got replaced by Ville Koistinen in the lineup tonight. I should have known though. That's a classic Coach Trotz move right there.
btw, Terry Crisp...it's AL-titude, not ALL-titude.
The defensive pairing of Greg Zanon and Dan Hamhuis = not my favorite right now.
What a stop by Budaj on Shea Weber's blast from the point towards the end of the first. I hope it hurt his glove hand just a little.
You know who I'm really disappointed in right now? Captain Jason Arnott. I'm really annoyed that he hasn't been able to put away any of the chances that he's had right at the net. He had the perfect opportunity to stuff the puck into the open net behind Budaj in the last few seconds of the first on the 4-on-4. He COMPLETELY missed it; didn't even put his stick on it, actually. WHAT. THE. PUCK. Seriously, Jason...I'm mad at you right now.
Dan Ellis must have really been under the weather since Trotz seemed to have no inclination whatsoever to pull Pekka after Colorado's
What was up with all the line changes?!? Here's a hint, Trotz: THEY'RE NOT WORKING.
Jordin Tootoo getting dumped over the boards and into the Colorado bench was pretty funny. I'm not gonna lie.
I don't like hearing assistant coach Peter Horachek say "maybe we'll find away to make something happen" when asked about what to do when we're down by three. If one of the coaches doesn't even seem to be confident in our ability to score...THAT IS A PROBLEM.
ERAT SHOULD NEVER EVER BE PUT IN A POSITION WHERE HE HAS TO PLAY DEFENSIVE-MINDED.
Did we just give up after the second?! If it's possible for hockey players to phone it in, we totally did.
Boys, boys, boys, boys, BOYS! I don't know how much more of this I can take. It's definitely time for a major heart-to-heart. Rest assured you will be hearing from me again very soon.
