Postgame - Blues

A little too close for comfort...


While its nice to see the boys show that they can win in a shootout (and in a dominant fashion in the process), I'd really rather they not go to shootouts at all. Yes, Iggy can score in the shootout. Yes, Kipper can now shut out the opposing shooters. But I'd really be much more comfortable not having to see them prove it...

To come back from a one goal deficit after the first period only to give up a two goal lead in the third period is a little frustrating...

Huselius was on fire tonight (as best I could tell from the radio feed). A goal to reach 30 on the season (plus three assists)...

Stempniak also showed up for tonight's game, with two lamplighters for the Blues including the tieing goal halfway through the third. The Flames weren't quite Stempniaked, but it looked like they almost could have been...

Lombardi really needed to make full use of his chance on the top line, which he didn't do tonight. And getting a senseless penalty at the end of overtime wasn't the smartest thing either, no matter how borderline the offence actually was...

He's just lucky that Kipper saved his ass...

This game did not exactly instill confidence in me, which has been a running trend the last few weeks. Although it was nice to hear that Playfair actually pulled the boys aside in the third period, which shows that he's at least open to the idea of settling them down during a game (even though it came at least one goal too late)...

me neither. In fact, it had the opposite effect.

But what do you think he really had to say? "Uh, boys... Uh... You gotta step it up... Uh... We're playing bad... Uh..."
