@firefox91 @Crosbyjuice2  As someone in the arena, I was trying to get the people around me going when they were down 2-0. The silence that overwhelmed the arena would have sucked the life out of any professional.


They got back into it when Geno did all the work himself. But proceeded to roll over and die when the Rangers scored again. The crowd has issues - it's like they're the crowd from Gladiator and all they want is to be entertained. Pretty sure they'd ask for a Scuderi sacrifice when they get bored. It's kinda sucky.

@EngoWaffles  Did you watch the same game I did? Despres was awful. Straight terrible. He had at least four giveaways breaking out of the zone. Like, "Here's a pass, Yote, and I'm not going to work to get to you before you shoot it on net" giveaways. I know that everyone likes to blame Dan, but for the love of christ, Despres is bad, and he should feel bad. He has no idea what he's doing, takes stupid penalties, and makes bad plays - and tonight wasn't the only instance of this.


Niskanen did have a rare off night, and Maatta looks tired - though that hustle to save the ENG, man. Impressive.
