The fourth line is still an issue. Better than it was with Lazar battling Neil for offensive futility, but imagine if we have White centering that line, instead. And while I don't mind Wingels, he hasn't exactly five very much.

I'm not saying the refs were bad or that we would have won if we had more power plays. It's just that the level of play was too low.  You draw penalties when you hustle.

They lagged at times, but Tampa out hustled, out skilled, out passed and generally out worked us.  It was pretty worrisome to see - because this isn't the first time they've manhandled us.  Again, it's the natural evolution that we'll have to face where this team is pointed in the right direction, but isn't able to keep up with the big boys yet.

Not that I'm down on the team, they're very good, but this was disturbing - made worse by the fact that TB had played the night before.

Also...I love Chris Kelly and what he's brought this year, but I'd also love to have someone in his spot who has some semblance of offense in their game.
Tampa is on a roll and playing desperate. The Sens might not want to admit it, but it's only natural that they are feeling like they are in the playoffs and can let the foot of the gas. A nice drubbing by the Hawks might get their attention before facing Prags team.

He hasn't done a lot, but he was a key contributor last night. I expected more from Wingels, but he's a depth guy and I think he'll earn his keep in the playoffs.

Hopefully the Sens learned from this one and it doesn't take a beating from Chicago for them to right the ship. TBL was one game. I expect them to bounce back and win the next 3 in a row.  GoSensGo! Munch

That's not really the point.  I know their record, but this was a measuring stick game imo.

They'll be fine. They were due for a loss. All that matters is how they respond.

It's not the loss that bugs me really, it's how badly we got outplayed.

I was offended by that "performance."

It was a stinker, but they were due and still got a point.
