I love taking Greene to task for a -3 when it's Severson who lost his man on goal #2 and Larsson who did on goal #4. But since Salvador or Zidlicky isn't out there in the waning minutes, can't go crazy about DeBoer's selections anymore, so I guess it's now protest what he says.
it's not the -3. he's been not great coming off what was a terrific season last year. and yes, larsson and severson were big issues the end of the game.
we've discussed how they're trying to turn larsson into something different than he was, but he's becoming very strong in his own zone as they essentially squeeze any offensive life out of him. what he hasn't learned to do yet is take care of the front of the net. with 5-10 seconds left, you murder anyone in front of the net, penalty or not. take the penalty. i'm not going to go crazy over it, and severson's dzone work has also not been great lately.
