Interesting tidbit I read....Boston is the first team in history to win a series with ZERO power play goals in that series. When you lose, statistics can be interesting....LOL.

It never is "Andrew"...but he's already gotten a pass on flipping the bird. Apparently that IS Andrew. That was virtually the same hit that ended Crosby's season.

Well, we are going to keep three men back so as to avoid giving up the odd man rush....they are going to send everyone deep...the problem we had was we didn't play positional hockey in our own end and you can see three and four people covering one or two. No one covering the points. We also chased the puck a lot instead of covering...which is a problem when you are looking for someone to pass to when trying to get out of your own end.

Third period, especially, we didn't play together in our own end. Everyone was playing their own game, running around trying to cover the puck. The problem with that is when we finally get posession, everyone's out of position and it's really difficult to break out, especially when Boston played really well below the goal line. So we end up flipping the puck, dumping it, or trying to skate it out from deep in our own end resulting in a turnover. The only real good news was that it was a lot harder for Boston to get a change as their bench was furthest from our defensive end (obviously)...I think they tended to stay out a bit longer due to the amount of possession time they had. Bottom line, it's the playoffs and it's only about figuring out a way to win that one game and play another. But the third period reminded me of much of last season's playoffs where we'd play for lengthy periods in our defensive end, break out finally and score...which eventually caught up to us. It's not a beauty contest or "correct hockey" but whatever it takes to win tonight and move on. Whatever it takes.
