For long stretches of that game we looked GOOD.

But the simple rule of this game is that if you don't capitalize on your chances, you lose. We have one bad reaction to a faceoff from Shattenkirk (with Oshie falling down) give up a terrible odd man rush SH and all of a sudden we're (Frank).

HAD to score on those chances we had. HAD to. And I frankly can't believe we had that many.


Oshie was tripped by Brown on the faceoff, that's how Brown got such a quick jump on the puck. That whole sequence of plays, from the hit, the trip, the interference, to the goal was one of the most frustrated I can remember.

Hitch is saying all the right things. I hope these boys come out and play a hard 60 mins tomorrow.

IF the Blues would had put a body in front of the net, they would had some juicy chances to put in some of those rebounds.

Hopefully Polak opens up a can of whoop ass on some Queens tomorrow, and the rest of the team responds accordingly. I'll admit that I overreacted to just one loss, but if they fail to get it done and assert themselves as the superior team in game 2, stick a fork in them.

I wouldn't say that...especially if they outplay the Kings again and come up short.

I've seen far too many things the buck the trend to ever say "stick a fork in 'em" if the series is only 0-2.

We're not a 7 seed playing a 2 seed and envisioning being down 2-0 to a superior team. This is a very good Blues team (a better team than the Kings) and we're only down 1-0 in the series, and if they happen to go down 2-0, the Kings still need to win 2 more games...and with the record of home teams in this year's playoffs?? Nah... we're not out of it until the Kings have secured their 4th win.

I didn't get all wrapped up and swept away by this team this year to give up on them if they go down 2-0 against a friggin' 8th seed. Not a chance. Even without Petro.

Well Hitch blamed that goal on Backes (and DP) for what it's worth "our other two forwards just didn't come back hard enough "

And re-watching the goal he's right. David get's right up and is the closest forward, but he's coasting back.

I was referring more to talking about the hit on Petro. But I agree.

I used to be upset when a coach doesn't address gross unfairness, but I like Hitch's approach. It's all about focus and getting your head back in the game. I love the steadiness of his approach and bluntness. I expect a more energized, but focus team tonight.
