Hard to want to write a game report after this debacle. Five PP goals against, Martin Gerber pulled mid-second, a complete disaster in all three zones of the rink, and penalty trouble again.
I'm starting to question my own opinion on Gerber as he jsut undid everything he had recovered in the past three weeks with this performance. It was bad.
Meszaros took a five minute penalty and a game misconduct for a hit from behind that I didn't think was that bad. It looked like Picard turned late and Meszy couldn't pull up. Of course, we were frustrated with the 3-0 deficit so I'm sure the refs figured Meszaros was taking out his frustrations, but the ensuing powerplay put us away for good.
Again, we are reminded of what a mistake it would have been if Alfredsson had been traded during the previous losing streaks. We are lost without him and Redden.
This makes three straight sub-par efforts from the team and we now have Detroit, Nashville, and Buffalo this week.
