Perhaps the worst game for Filppula thus far in his short career for TBL.
Flip has been screwing up a lot over the last month. I don't know if it's overconfidence because he's having a career year or mental fatigue because he's playing more than he ever has, but his passing and decision making have gotten noticeably worse as time has gone on, and he's overhandling the puck way too much and getting stripped in bad spots too much. Frankly, it's like the disease that Purcell's had all season has spread to Filppula this past month.
Stamkos has just been inconsistent with his decision-making and his intensity since coming back from the broken leg. There are times he looks like a man among boys and times he disappears and still other times he looks like he's trying to do too much and making mistakes left and right.
All three guys are guilty of settling into bad habits, and if they don't get out of those bad habits quickly, they're going to drag the entire season down with them.
