-Save for the last powerplay which was terrible, the powerplay was finally on tonight which was refreshing.
-Rick Dipietro was decent! Did he give his team a chance to win? Not really, however, he didn't get much help in some instances.
-Kyle Okposo needs to be benched! His play continues to be abysmal through 12 games.
-First line played better tonight, although there are way to many turnovers.
-The Bailey-Cizikas-Martin line has been pretty effective. Marty Reasoner should be waived ASAP because it seems like barring injury Casey Cizikas isn't giving up his spot.
-Hickey didn't have a good game! Save for tonight he hasn't been bad, but the fact that he is a rookie really shined through tonight!
-The third period tonight was one that weve seen for the better part of the last 5 years, just terrible!
-Our 5-5 offense is abysmal, you cant count on special teams to win you every game!
-Brad Boyes is starting to become like Okposo in that every time he shoots the puck, he misses the net.
I think the teams frustration can be seen perfectly with the video below courtesy of Kevin Schultz from pointblank.
Some have speculated that a poor showing on Thursday at MSG could cost Capuano his job. I would like to agree, but then I remember the team we root for and the fact that simple logic isn't usually their strong suit.
Next Game: Thursday @ MSG 7PM
