I think we might have forgotten how to play again. At least for about 4 minutes in the third period. We had the game. Had it. Right up until a stupid penalty and our craptastical penalty kill had a chance to suck. It was tied when the third managed to close out. Overtime, we usually do slightly better in. Usually. But then we don’t usually take stupid too many men on the ice calls either. Not even 30 seconds left in the game, not even 10 seconds left in the game, and they throw one in on a power play that shouldn’t have happened. And they wonder why it is we place bets on who’ll do worse than them. My uncle, while we were out for coffee last night, seemed surprised we were in second last. My response? At least we’re not in last.
We played a little better in November, of course that was the we could actually play consistently. Managing 4 3 I actually sort of considered the possibility that we might have then been turning around after an ultra crappy start. I’d like to point out, just for the record, I was mistaken. Stick a fork in this team… I think we’re done.
