Well done protecting Marty, team. Especially Brewer.

Glad we aren't putting up with that crap anymore.

Bishop just made a couple huge saves. We need to bury one on Neuvirth.

Ovechchoke can't dance around you if you faceplant him into the ice. That's how you deal with skill guys.

Vinny's looked very good, same with Killorn (business as usual).

Thought the 3rd goal was soff but can't fault Bishop on the first two, and he's made some big stops.

Need a regulation win to have a realistic shot at the playoffs (aka the division title)...

We've got such a deeper, more talented team and we're going to lose again. Taormina is the only player hitting anything and it's now clear that goaltending was not the problem, perhaps even Boucher was not the problem.

FINISHING your chances from in close and FINISHING your checks will make the difference.

Goaltending was undeniably PART of the problem. Bishop made some huge saves, but ultimately the softie was the difference. You give a good team a goal and they will make you pay.

Of course the pass first mentality needs to be eliminated, but that doesn't happen overnight.

Not that it wasn't expected but it's disappointing to see another season in the damn toilet.

Not sure anything is clear after 5 games under Cooper and 3 with Bishop.

Not only the "pass first" mentality, but also our HORRID inability to finish goals. We ring more posts, whiff on more wide-open nets, send more shots from right in front of the net wide. and break more sticks on shots that I can even count.

We need to work on accuracy, in my opinion. I am sick of seing these world-class scorers not put the puck in the net when the scoring chance is handed to them on a golden flipping platter. It's pathetic.

It figures, lack of hustle when it counts and give aways. Too bad they don't call clutching and grabbing, if they did Stammer might get some open ice. Bishop made some great saves, but not enough. Bloody Ochokin and Fehr and Chimera, would love to see them get hit a few more times. Oh well hello Nathan or Seth.
