We ALWAYS lose the battles in front of our own net. Pretty much the most important area to win battles, and if there's a lose puck there it's always the opponent that gets a stick on it, creating dangerous shots or passes. This is something that I've noticed the last weeks/months and it has to change.
It is scripted, but that doesn't make performing with injuries any easier. People never seem to understand that. Wrestlers are tougher than any athletes I can think of when it comes to performing with injuries.
