The only positives about tonight is we did not get blown out and there weren't glaring defensive breakdowns. Something that was a concern of mine from the start of the year is the lack of goal scoring – they really need to wake up.

Penalties – STOP TAKING PENALTIES. I understand if you take a penalty to break up a scoring chance, but I have had enough of the lazy hooking and holding calls – they will call them every time and you guys know that.

Overall, it was definately a better effort then the Toronto game, but there is still obviously work to be done.
