The faceoff was won back to Petro but before the puck got there, Perron reaches out and grabs the puck while Petro is winding up...and he takes a wrist shot and is poke checked as he shoots and it goes into the corner. What the hell? He seemed to be stealing pucks from everyone tonight. Have a little hockey sense there David. Know where your teammates are. That was just stupid.

This is exactly how I saw it.
We were actually talking after the opener about how if we tried to play like that against an actual opponent that showed up for the game, we were going to be in trouble.
The most concerning part to me is this looks like the complete polar opposite of the Hitchcock hockey that we had so much success with last year. Sure, there is still some decent forechecking by some of our forwards, but the (lack of) back checking and carelessness with the puck is sickening.
Again...it's early...but we just had a day off and we're back home. I expect them to play much better tonight.
