and after Tuesday, I think they figured out that wasn't going to happen.

giving us a total of 7 SOG in our last 2 periods of play. Our first SOG was not until about 14:50 into the period (despite having a PP). Someone in the Arena please go to the press box to remove sharp objects from Spath's reach.

Can't win many games allowing 4 or 5 per game.
Does Michigan have 3 #3 goalies? or a couple of #2 back-ups that need greater defensive support?

I think Janecyk is a No. 3. I have no idea what Rutledge is. Racine could be a No. 2, though he gives up way too many easy ones.

4 goals on 17 shots, 76%, no confidence to stop anything?

It's not so much how many shots but the quality of shots. Listening to game, I don't know if they were good goals or not. Have to ask Spath who I believe is at the game.

At this point I would be trying club team goalies.

Michigan needed its goalie to bail it out with one or two saves on those shots and so far Racine hasn't.

Red has said many times that he just wants his goalies to make the normal saves. Given that the goaltending is iffy at best, why are we so poor in defensive zone coverage so that the goalies don't have to bail the team out?

Under .500 at Yost for the first time in I don't know when this late in the season. Boys didn't give up but you just can't give up this many goals every game.

in good games we score one goal per 5-6 shots. We did that tonight. And that's the problem.
23 shots on goal, 4 of them go in. But the rate we were shooting, I didn't think we could get 25 (I even told my wife).
They don't count the ones that miss for a reason.
Normally, 3-4 goals should be enough. But we let in goals at just over 1 per 4 shots- 5 goals on 21 shots- that's pathetic.
How in the world did Trouba get a best defense for the World Jrs? Just for the goals he scored? He had some doozy turn overs tonight.
And that shortie- was all set up from Merril's whif.
