No idea why Larsson gets the scratch so Volchenkov can stink up the joint. Do teams ever really drop a game of a coachs debut though? Just our luck

A power play goal, a short handed goal, a goal by a defenseman, and a penalty shot goal by Tom f'ing Kostopoulos...and they still can't win.  Simply astounding.

Lol at everyone jumping off the cliff.

 

Yeah it sucks we are giving up points but we still have a nice little cushion. Hopefully they get a win tomorrow and lets see where this team is at when Zubrus returns next week. This team will be good when everyone gets back. Have to keep getting points.

Larsson has been pretty bad too

the only thing this little cushion guarantees is that we are not out of the top 8 by tomorrow. 5 points is a nice little cushion...not 3.

You knew they were going to lose this game the minute it hit OT. Absolutely clueless in the shootout.

Gio needs to be sent back to the minors where he belongs, and Volch needs to be bought out or traded.

The defense is perfectly healthy.   The forwards created enough offense in this game, the defensive play was fvcking disgusting.   Stamkos literally must have been invisible.    You cannot play defense like that in zone or in transition.   It was a joke.

In what reality is 2 points a cushion? Granted the Rangers have been sucking as well, but come on.

Ok they had a bad game tonight against a really good offense. Our defense has been playing great over the last few weeks. Defense is the last ting I am worrying about.

Broduer has been bad these past two games. He made some great saves tonight but let it alot if sh!t and the shootout was pathetic. Last game he lets in 2 on 14 shots and tonight 4 on 25 shots. Goaltending has really been the bane of this teams existence this season.

Everyone jumps on Moose, but six goals on 39 shots is not good at all

3 points above the Isles with the same amount of games played is a little cushion. You guys overreact wayyyy too much.

 

EDIT: so if we got another point tonight that would make the difference right?  4pts...3point cushion on 9th, my goodness what a difference! Win tomorrow, get at least a point on Monday and we are in good shape. Ill come back scared if we lose both in regulation.

Why are we jumping on gionta here?? We scored 4 points, we can't ask for much more than that offensively

.. Unless of course we talk about the SO, but you know what I mean

I don't even know with this team. I almost want Lou to sell, not buy, on the deadline. The sooner this sub-par defense gets flushed out of the system the better.

That was one of the worst losses I can remember in awhile.   They basically committed suicide on ice.   Of course because it's the East, it won't matter.   Until Boston slaughters them

 

They had a worse one last year in the first round and bounced back from that.

 

Just beat the ****ing Panthers tomorrow, please - and then beat the damn Islanders on Monday.  I don't give a **** whether it's Markstrom, Clemmsensen or Theodore in a full body cast.

Gionta was on the ice for THREE goals, including the game-tying goal.  Of course so was Volch/Harrold.

Or course it has.    And that's not a really good offense.   It's Steve Stamkos, the guy they didn't mark all night.

Are you really surprised that people are pissed after a game where we blew two 2-goal leads to the freaking Lightning? This is the SOFT part of the schedule. You gotta beat these teams, especially when you go up by two...TWICE. No excuse for this one.

That's not 'that' much of a cushion lol, especially since they play us on Monday.  That's practically a must-win game now.  So is tomorrow for that matter.  All these points given up to **** teams are going to bite us sooner or later if we don't clamp down.
