Honestly I probably should be more upset than I am. We had an opportunity to take advantage of a weak Price in a game we got more or less dominated. We came very close to doing just that. But in a half glass full world, we couldn't possibly play much worse yet were very close to stealing the game nonetheless. Sure some of our improvement could be cancelled with Price being better but either way this is still shaping up to be a very close series and in spite of game 1 loss we are far from out of it. The vets will be better (at least they better be), and hopefully the forwards can generate some consistent zone-time.
