Ouch, that was a painful period. Several factors playing in I think; Wings committing more errors than usual / or being caught at the wrong time (Ralf, Ericsson), very hungry and ignited Pens players, 2 consecutive PP's that turned into an SH goal - which in turn created a massive momentum etc
We can absolutely turn it around but I have a hard time being optimistic.
Not to point just one player out but Hossa is, to me, a perpetual disappointment. He should make a bigger impact than this, not just by producing points but by his overall presence on the ice. He looks like a lot of flash but no bang at all right now. He can do way better and this is the time for him to show it.
