Lousy start leads to shootout shutdown


Sat, 03/10/2012 - 5:12pm

Should be a wake up call for the K's.  Letting a team that just lost 5 in a row, skating 2 men short, without their leading scorer come into our building and score 3 times in the first period.

No, I'm not a hockey coach but doesn't it make sense to put a body on the one guy on their team that can take control of a game?  I get so sick of seeing Robinson beat us.  They had no problem putting our skill guys on their butts.  I counted 3 times that Chaulk got absolutely taken off of his feet and put to the ice.  Not ONCE did we put a body on Robinson.  Can someone please provide me an answer as to why?  Are we scared that they will come after us?  They obviously aren't scared of us because they play very physical with our skill guys.  Heck, Gens who is only 6' runs us all night.  Last time I checked we have bigger d-men than that who are capable of playing physical.  There has to be some reason that we will not punish other teams forwards when they go in our corners.  We know for a fact that being physical with Robinson will cause him frustration and take their whole team off their game.  We have seen this play out when they play other teams.


Someone please help me see what I'm missing!

With the time change, maybe they'll skip the first period tonight............
