Guest GreekHockeyCoach Posted February 22, 2008 Report Share Posted February 22, 2008 The thing that was more painful about tonight's game was that we should have won that freakin' game when we came back from behind. And a win would have put us in the first spot rather than ending 5th after tonight's game. The home advantage is something we must fight for as much as for the division title, something we didn't win since 1992! Another thing which I complained for almost all year is that we never went for heads on star opposition players when we are losing the game hard. I was wishing to see somebody enter the Scott Stevens club and smash Malkin's lights out (i.e. hit-on-Eric-Lindros style). I have enough of that fair-play mentality when Bettman is there; BTW, are there people from the media ready to kick our player out of town if he ever lays down a Stevens-style hit or something even dirtier on a star player from the other team? You can also look at last night's game as a learning experience. All the players are aware, as they stated in the press conference, that they need to play better defense. This run and gun style is fine when you're behind but in general they have to play better defensively and they are all aware of that now. It was a good wake-up call.
