Although we gave up fewer than 30 shots, I'm not sure that 27 allowed to a team that just played the night before and had to travel in from out of town is that great. I believe the Sens were ahead 18-15 after 2 periods so that means they gave up 12 in the third. To a tired team.
I get it that Vancouver was a desperate team. But the Sens also cannot afford not to play desperate hockey. True, they blocked a ton of shots so I suppose that speaks to the level of desperation, but I also saw some plays where they were out-hustled by Vancouver to loose pucks.
I'll take the W. Hopefully Stone and Wideman are back in Buffalo. As well as Claesson and Boro may have played, I prefer having a rightie and a leftie playing their strong sides.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
