Dumb pass attempt by Dotchin on the first goal. He had Kucherov wide open as an outlet.

Kucherov was downright lazy on that 3rd goal.

It is an absolute joke to see killorn out there in any situation where we are looking for offense (end of game or pp). I have no idea what he has done to earn 5 more minutes of ice time than Callahan. I'm also really mad at how much abuse we let our stars take this game. If paquette isn't here to help with that, get someone who will.

And down goes the stralman plus minus. Honestly not sure he was at fault for any of it (our forwards were a mess in our zone), but -4, yikes.

Team defense has been garbage the last couple games.

I'm not one to place blame on refs too often, but tonight was probably the worst officiated Lightning game of this season. So many questionable calls and non calls.
1. Stamkos being cross-checked by Phaneuf
2. Sergachev being interfered with on the 2nd Ottawa goal
3. Kucherov getting an even up roughing call when Smith initiated it
4. Hedman getting a "roughing" call in a scrum where he literally did nothing
5. Dotchin getting a cross-check call that he wasn't originally getting after being sucker punched by Brassard. I've seen what Brassard did get a match penalty on a few similar occasions.

Cooper with a Torts-esque press conference. Joe Smith:
Quote:
Jon Cooper delivered an opening statement then walked off. Said there's "entitlement" growing in room, called upon leaders to right the ship.

Cooper; "There's a group of guys that are going to have to circle the wagons in there, the leaders, and figure this one out, because we're going down a road. This is part of the season now where you can't let things slide."
Here's the full quote. One question, one answer, mic dropped.

Good. That's 3 of the last 4 games with a sub-standard effort. Unacceptable. Philly, Montreal, Ottawa (and Detroit tomorrow) ... these are among the weakest teams in the Eastern Conference.

I am kinda annoyed that Callahan is getting only 11 mins of ice time now. Last game he had 5 SOG, 5 hits and was very good, maybe another couple of shifts and a couple of more mins, he pots one. His confidence is being destroyed by Cooper. I don’t believe his offense is totally gone, but Cooper is making it hard for him to find his offensive game again. Top of bad luck is not helping either. Callahan will never play up to that contract, but his lack of production is not just on him. I thought maybe with a loss in Montreal, he would be boosted up with Gourde on the 3rd line for his efforts in Montreal. I’m Just not sold on Conacher. Gourde and Cally looked great in pre-season so thought maybe Coop would give it a go.

Listen, I’m not saying give Callahan like 17 plus mins and top 6 time, but Give him 3rd line time, 15 mins a game and that’s it. Don’t think that is asking too much to help get some confidence back. I think one thing that is keeping Callahan from moving up is with how good the 4th line is. Just one example, Kunitz has one point in 10 games without Callahan, and 10 points in 30 games with him.
