This afternoon, our Isles fell by a score of 5-1 to the Spezza and Alfredson less Senators. This victory clinched a playoff spot for Ottawa. Here are some of my notes:
-Well, the first period was an ok period for the Isles. Didnt look to bad in any aspect of the game at all!
-However after that it was all down hill as both the second and the third period were pretty bad. Outside of a handful of players the team basically played dead.
-Outside of Martin, Haley, and Tavares and maybe a few other people the entire team should hang their heads after this game. It was simply horrible from all aspects!
-Al Montoya didnt have a horrible game as he received little help. However, if he wants to prove to teams that he can be an effective starter hes got to come up with big saves from time to and he failed to do that today.
-Did anyone else shake their heads rapidly when they saw that Capuano put out a lineup of five defensemen after the Senators second goal? That was one of the oddest things I have seen in a while.
To be honest, there isn't much more to say on this game. Hopefully, they come with a better effort for the rest of the season. It would a real shame after how well the Penguins home and home went if they ended up playing like this for the rest of the season.
Next Game: Tuesday @ New Jersey
