Still not good enough.
Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on 40 shots for the loss. He did a good job stabilizing after a poor First Period but the team in front of him just isn’t playing well.
6:16 FLA E.Staal (12), (Mahura, Cousins)
15:56 FLA Lundell (9), (Tkachuk, M.Staal)
17:37 FLA Luostarainen (14), (unassisted)

19:55 FLA Duclair (1), (E.Staal, Cousins)(EN)
Acquiring Tanner Jeannot was not some kind of magic elixir. The team still isn’t matching the sharpness and intensity of these teams that are fighting for their playoff lives, and they’re getting embarrassed because of it. No way in hell this team should ever get outplayed by a Barkov-less Sunrise team as resoundingly as they were tonight, but here we are. It’s on the players to fix it.
