To put it into perspective, we were playing one of the best team's in the league who are the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Thanks to Ryan Miller, the highest scoring team in the NHL only had one goal for pratically the entire game. But with such a talented and smart team like Detroit, it's extremely dangerous to sit on a 1-0 lead or a 1-1 tie. I don't care how good your goalie is playing, you're going to get burned. Ryan Miller was playing phenomenal in front of his home state and his team couldn't have at least gotten a point for him. Unbelievable. Jason Pominville's two missed opportunities was extremely frustrating. Especially the 2-on-1 with Hecht towards the end of the game. When you have a 2-on-1 against Detroit and the game is tied 1-1 in the third then you have to score. The fact that we were in the game the entire game when it could have easily been a blackout is just very annoying. I can only
Miller has been playing superb hockey over the past several games. I'm very impressed with him, and I just feel bad for him that the team couldn't win or at least get a point for him tonight. What a shame. Carolina lost today and we could have gained sole possession of the 8th spot. Florida is only one point behind us.
Very frustrating. Rest up and be ready for Chicago, boys.
