All of the hustle and hard work, all of the forecheck and backcheck, all of the shots on goal and doing the little things right do not mean a whole hell of a lot if you cannot bury the puck in the net.
Tonight we played better than Detroit because we are, I think we destroyed them in the face-off circle, we kept possession of the puck, sometimes at will, we had all of the quality chances we should ever need to put a team away and yet we end up with nothing to show for it.
Are we snake bitten? I don’t know. I don’t think so. We shoot high when we should shoot low. We are a foot here or a foot there away from the puck on rebounds, we have some of the shittiest luck I have seen us have and we keep losing precious points in the process.
On top of it all, we make hacks like Jimmy Howard, who is having an abysmal season, look good.
I am beyond angry. At some point you get angry enough where everything comes into focus and you realize that you don’t have the answers but you sure as hell hope the people paid a lot of money and who do this for a living do.
We deserved to win tonight. We were and are the better team. The fact those imps are walking out of our arena with their heads high as opposed to off disgusts me.
Jonathan Quick gave up a bad goal on that second one.
Jake Muzzin was a special kind of awful tonight. He will sit next game.
That was all I have to complain about. Other than that, we played some pretty good hockey.
Let’s figure out what we have to sacrifice to get the Hockey Gods to give us bounces.
Let’s figure this out soon.
