Our top players have no clue how to play against a team that plays a trap game in the neutral zone and our coaches have no clue how to scheme against it.

Second and third periods were abysmal examples of NHL hockey.

Shots were 18-4 in the second. No response for BSchenn’s egregious hit on our Hart winner. WTF? These players are stupid AND spineless. Enjoy yet another regular season, because without serious changes, these guys aren’t capable of winning a Cup.

When your hopes routinely rest on the scoring talents of your 3rd and 4th line you know you have problems. The 'top' guys look like they're playing an All-Star game with guys they've only practiced with a few times. The passing is off, nobody's fighting to get into scoring position to receive a pass, and how about not shooting the puck over the net or wide when you are in scoring position?

Sounds like Stamkos was sick but really, 0 shots, 2 attempts both blocked, 2-11 on face-offs? Why bother playing?

After seeing that there is at least a small smoldering ember left during the Buffalo games it makes this drop back into mediocrity more angering.

Without serious changes these guys aren't capable of making the playoffs to get swept again.

Feels like the team is just going through the motions because they don’t want to do the regular season.

Default Lack of will

The 1st period was very good then they tanked. Last 2 periods they were terrible and no pay back for the late hit on Kuch was spineless. The lack of will to play hard and get to the front of the net hurt us. They need to find themselves and play hard. The call on Cernak for protecting Kuch was crap, they should have given him 2 minutes and that asshole who decked Kuch after he had passed the puck off and was in a vulnerable position should have been 4 minutes. I am just really angry about this loss.

Totally outplayed in the 2nd and 3rd periods and I can't remember one puck battle that they won. At least Cernak was willing to rough it up with the Blues player after the hit on Kuch. Don't know what it is about this team they seem to show signs of playing decent hockey and then they fall back into what we saw last night.

Getting tough to find a reason to watch. Maybe against Toronto; similar charminy soft team we can play with.

We have seen Lightning players (including Kucherov) make good, hard hits on other players that resulted in injuries and we haven’t expected our player to then be targeted.

No one from the Lightning should have gone after a Blues player for making a good, clean hit on one of our players either.
