So, anyway, not a bad dress rehearsal.

The team played well, but lost.

So, no need for a complete overhaul. Most of the pieces are in place, but there is some fine tuning needed.
And as they lost, they will not be cocky, but will be wanting to prove they can do better.

Petey will be pissed. And he can build on that.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!

He was pissed. it was very visible during the third period.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Petey was on for three goals against. His line got owned in the second period. Toffoli and Miller both looked rusty. I saw more good than bad but the defensive structure or lack thereof is alarming.

I was surprised at how ineffective Miller was. He is usually the driver of that line.

Bo and Brock on the other hand, generated more than enough grade A chances and shots to at least make the score more competitive. Hellyubyuck stoned everyone.

Jets capitalized and finished some bad turnovers. No surprise Stecher got handled like a yappy chihuahua, really disappointed by Pearson's defensive work throughout the game. Second goal was on him.

Ferland is just what this team needs, waiting for the hits to come. Need him to stay healthy.

4th line. Other than Motte's engine... meh. Sutter should sit, but we know that won't happen.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Miller is one to watch. He was criticized for disappearing in the playoffs in Tampa. Hopefully that is not an indication of things to come.

I wouldn't say Miller was invisible. The team really dominated the first half of the 1st period.

But once Hellyubyuck got on a roll, it seemed like nobody could do anything other than Bo's line occasionally... until the 3rd line crashed the net to jam one in.

All that D shuffling around probably didn't help either.

Barely touched the puck till the third period when he started to assert himself a bit. No idea why. That line was bad in general.
Coach is trying to have two equally dangerous scoring lines. I get it. I agree with it. I just hope the two LA King boys are up to it.

Yeah that 3 goals in 61 playoff games is pretty horrendous

So in your opinion does “Virtanen the fat pig on wheels” draw in for Game 2?

I know I’d be getting him in there. I’d also juggle the lines.

Miller Pettersson Boeser
Pearson Horvat Toffoli
Ferland Sutter Virtanen
Motte Gaudette MacEwan

Beagle and Roussel both stunk last night. So did Gaudette for that matter. I’d have no problem if he came out. He is getting lit up defensively.

Why are you two goombas in the Jets thread?
