I just am mystified at that effort.

Flat? Check.

Sloppy? Check.

Clumsy? Check.

Stupid? Check.

Pretty much across the board. Every touch of the puck had an extra bobble. Every pass slightly off (and very soft). Unemotional for at least half the game. And, stupid penalties in the Third Period to make sure they weren't going to come back.

Palat was ok. Killorn was ok.

Thought Sustr played too big for his britches and I thought Gudas was playing stupid and teetering on out of control at points.

What a coincidence. I had a dentist appointment this morning. Watching the hockey game was more painful.

Going by Pete's Twitter, it sounds like I made a good call not subjecting myself to the NBCSN studio gong show. Now Roenick is going full Millbury, too?

Looks like I picked a good night to skip the game in favor of studying.
I'm glad to hear Stammer continued his strong play post-Boston. I'm sorry to hear that he is nearly alone in that assessment.

This is all part of the growing pains of having as many rookies and 2nd year players as we have on our roster.

That was terrible. It looked like three guys just gave up.

Couldn't have said it better.

BTW, every time a guy makes a save, he doesn't deserve a ceremonial chant. Shut the * up.

Usually I like Engblom, and he looks for nice things to say about the Lightning. But last night I thought he'd suffocate--couldn't get his tongue out of Jaromir Jagr's "big behind" long enough to get a breath.

I thought Johnson, Stamkos and Bishop were the lone bright spots in a puzzling display of exactly what NOT to do in a hockey game, by everyone else at every position, in every circumstance. It was a like a lesson in reverse. Only by the blessings & grace of the Bishop was that score not horribly, embarrassingly lopsided....like, 8-1 or worse. Absolutely the game's #1 star. This guy is the real deal, possesses the same cool demeanor no matter the situation (unlike Lindbackup) and totally gave this team a chance to win a game they had no business even being IN...how you give up a 3-on-1 shorthanded in any league is beyond me. Every year I seem to sing the same refrain: He's my favorite player but can we PLEASE get Marty St. Louis off the fucking point?? The little bastard is at sea out there, has zero reach, zero knack for keeping pucks in, skates back hard as anyone yet can't play D after a breakout to save his life, and that position is simply not the best use of his puckhandling or skating skills. With Marty they need to make like every single one of my pencils...no more point.

Four shots a period, the ridiculous turnovers, the casual air of lazy passes...and lolligagging with a wide open net staring you in the face, what was Panik thinking?? No hitting...how the fuck do you get outhit by the team that has the puck all damn night?? It defies belief. Not even a fight to stir things up. Nothing.

Pluh

Well, at least the Bolts won't be remembered for another NHL record going against them:

Quote:
Jaromir Jagr scored his 119th game winning goal on Tuesday, but it's not yet an NHL record as previously thought.

Jaromir Jagr's second period goal against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night was his third of the season and the 684th of his incredible career.

It was also one for the record books. Or so we thought.

Jagr's goal was the game winner in New Jersey's 2-1 win -- extending the Devils winning streak to their longest of the season ... two games -- which gives him 119 game winning goals in his career. It was believed that goal moved him into sole possession on first place on the NHL's game winning goal leaderboard, moving ahead of Phil Esposito. Everybody believed that because the information came from an admittedly sketchy source: The NHL itself.

It turns out -- and this is the most NHL thing possible -- that information was incorrect.

Jagr did in fact move ahead of Phil Esposito on the game winning goal list, but he is still two behind Gordie Howe (121) for the all-time lead. According to the Elias Sports Bureau the previous goal total only included goals going back to the 1967-68 season.

I forgot to bitch about the NBC guys. Usually Strader and Engblom are palatable, but holy crap did they suck last night. Can you guys please talk about the game being played in front of you and not keep yammering about other things?
