That was just gross. If not already so, it was made clearly apparent after tonight, that this team is missing some significant pieces of the puzzle with so many players sidelined with injuries. Now is not the time for working out the kinks, however. Now is the time to play lights out hockey every time they hit the ice. The team's record has not been the greatest coming back after the All-Star break. At this point, I am pretty certain there have been more losses than wins. That, too, must change.
Seeing as how this day marks the anniversary of the historic 1980 USA vs USSR Olympic match up, I think the boys could use a pep talk from Mr. Herb Brooks:
"You were born to be hockey players; every one of ya...this is your time. Now go out there and take it."
Seriously, do it.
