Yup, this is kind of what it feels like.
Going into this one, I knew I would be a bit depressed by it. The Sharks are a solid team, and a replay of the game looked the part of a matchup between a good team versus an okay one. My primary hope was that there would be something redeemable about this shutout, and having looked at the BW I've determined that...there wasn't. Viewer discretion is advised.
Vertical Blue Lines -- Our goals
Vertical Black Lines -- Their goals
Shaded Green -- Powerplays
Shaded Pink -- Penalty kills
- Holy crap.
- HOLY CRAP.
- At the end of the first, there was perhaps a feeling that we had fought our way back to good standing, though we had started the period with a powerplay.
- Technically, the 2nd period was better than the 1st, in that despite a couple of penalty kills we managed to do some damage control after a rough ending to the previous period.
- It is fair to say that the 3rd period is when we shit the bed.
