A rare instance when I let the boys pass on a 7-1 beatdown. There was NO WAAAAY they were gonna win that game. SJ is in an entirely different league. Thought through the first period and 1/2 they were not too bad.

Luckily I fell asleep at 3-1.

All the guys must of been dead tired. A road trip with two back to back games. Yikes. And I thought I read somewhere in a preview that they also had practice before the game that day. I would've said screw practice and give the boys the rest they need. Glad I didn't stay up to watch it! But yeah, I completely give them a pass but for the bad, bad score. That just makes everything even worse. They could do well in this next home games and start turning it around.

I didn't get to see the game, so all I can go by are these comments.

That said, this is a team with 5 defensemen, a couple of which were AHL call ups on a back to back game against the best team in the league on the last game of long road trip and we are judging that 22 year old Ramo's future is over based upon this one game?

Then, that would have been us.

It was a brutal game.... Ramo was let out to dry so often, it was sad. I was surprised that Mike Smith wasn't put into the game.

Eastern teams coming off a long West Coast road trip traditionally play pretty bad in their first home game. The Forum should have a lot of red in it tomorrow night, unfortunately, with a sea of foul mouthed Flyers fans in attendance. I hope the Bolts win but I'm not expecting it.

Whoever wrote the schedule is a sadistic bastard.

True, but the Bolts have generally been able to come out and play when it was against the Flyers, and Mike Smith should be in goal. I'm also that Ranger and Eminger are playing. How's that for glass half full?

Nice thing is they have 5 home game stretch here, and they really need to turn it up at home and starting winning in the IP. They have the fewist home wins in the NHL going 4-7-7. Ouch. They could at the very least shoot for .500 at home! 7 overtime loses, 10 for the season!
