i was very surprised to read this from you, i thought we played a really good, entertaining game all throughout. I though we were much better in the first, second period was theirs, but the third period was once again ours. What really bothered me was our powerplay in general and their powerplay goal. That too many men penalty is just so maddening, and you could just tell, that's gonna be the one they convert into a goal... i was so furious. I don't know about you, but to me our powerplay just looks so slow and predictable (except that couple of touch passes right before OEL's goal, that was pretty neat); we had much better shifts even on 5on5, especially in the first period.
Also, I didn't see much of Podkolzin, which i thought was a shame.
I loved Garland, Hoglander, Highmore, and that Myers hit on Keith was soo sooo satisfying.
And I've just realized, I hate Mike Smith so much, I was so worried we would get shutout. Glad that didn't happen, but still, did you see his celebration at the end? Like he just won a round in the playoffs. what an embarrassment.
Also also, I don't mind Chiasson on the powerplay for now, but I hope he starts converting those chances very soon, Pettersson was feeding him with great passes.
