First of all, I will say, a win is a win.
There is reason for concern last night.
We almost blew a 5 goal lead in one period!
That doesn't concern anyone?
Individual performances aside, the team mentality and game play should have changed after going up 5 goals. Keep the intensity up, but start finishing hits. The Oilers had come off of a game the night before, and certainly were without some of their zip. The thing is, the pens never finished checks in any period, so they come out with plenty left in the tank in the third. I am not a big fan of changing game play just because you are up, but with 5 goals you keep playing aggressive but finish a check, and make sure the guy you hit is out of the play with you. It is just frustrating to watch that happen.
Also, it was frustrating watching them try to get Sykora a hat trick on the 5 on 3. It seems like we were just show boating and it bit us in the behind....almost.
On the other hand, I thought the lines started to show some life by actually looking to the front of the net while in the offensive zone cycle. Some very good even strength pressure applied last night and a great first two periods by Fleury.
Keep up the level of play we have had the last two games and we will be just fine. Just stop the lapses.
