The third goal was bad, althoygh bery bad d by karlsson. Not sure about the others.
First one was a 5-on-3 courtesy of a lazy trip by Karlsson and an inexcusable puck over the glass my Smith (not much pressure on him, lots of room to put the puck anywhere else). Even then he *almost* stopped the puck. Second one, again, on the same powerplay (Smith still in the box) Tootoo was left all alone in the slot -- poor coverage; Hammond was up against the left post because the puck was behind the goal, the pass out in front and the one time shot were very quick -- no chance for him. Third goal was again very bad coverage. He stopped the first shot but got absolutely no help. Last one was a mad scramble and he thought he had the puck but it got loose.
If you want to call any of those bad goals, probably the last one or the third one (would've been nice if there was no rebound). But he had no support.
The thing is, we get down 2 PPGs early and it sure didn't help not having Methot out there. Can't blame this one on Hammond. The Sens came into the game with the second most times short-handed in the league (recall that they hadn't played in five days at that point). They are a very undisciplined team right now. That third period hook by Stone was absolutely horrible. What the hell was he thinking? This isn't a rodeo. Well, it kinda was.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
