I liked our compete level, we got more shots on goal, that's something that we talked about. It's a race to 4, we got one, they got one ... that's hockey. We'll regroup and head back home and work on a couple more things and be ready to go.
I agree with OP's opening statement. Fan doesn't mean just support through anything and not calling them out when they are playing below their ability or with no heart. Fan can expect excellence, hard work every night, and the upholding of the Red WIngs tradition.
I get that sometimes we lose but if they give an honest effort and they lose, that's hockey, that's sports ... I'm perfectly fine with that. But when they sleep for 20 mins and get down 0-2 and then play hockey for next 40 mins but can't equalize, and lose ... that deserves some sh*t raising.
