It's still the transition from Babs to Blash. Our new coach is only 18 games in the NHL. Of course our team doesn't look as well rehearsed as under Babs yet. And don't forget that we had games under Babs that were equally devastating, I argue even more so as we looked much more passive than under Blashill. Give him and the players some time before you see the sky fall.
I'll give you a hint: We have this conversation only when the team loses.
When you win, you're the best team on the planet. When you lose, you're god-awful and should just quit. I guess.
Yeah, they look bad tonight. Guess what? It's the second game of a back-to-back, with brand new lines and a brand new face in the lineup, and they've had a bunch of bounces not go their way. Mrazek is a little off tonight from his usual self and there have been a few egregious mistakes on the defensive end. That's a bunch of really bad things to throw into one game, but I don't think the sky is falling here. I don't think we should look at this game positively so far, but nobody needs to be shipped off before the game is even over. I'm not about moral victories but let's see who steps up in the third.
Thank you for that post.To be fair, the Bruins don't play lights out. It were our mistakes that let to these goals. But I agree, the Sky isn't falling and if a few bounces here and there had gone the Wings way it would be 2:2 or even 2:1 now.

Helm not able to pull the trigger and falls down instead. At this point it's almost comedy.
