I mean, I really was convinced we'd lose tonight. I was hoping for a win tomorrow though. Both teams getting a beat down means both will come out hard tomorrow, but at least both will be tired equally.
Fucking meltdown out there. Hank isn't the least of our problems, though. Some were beyond him but... this wouldn't be 5-2 MOST of the time with past Hank. He's getting there. Look at last year. Defensive woes, yes, but goalie too. And I don't think Pavelec is our next Raanta or Talbot either. Hank can still steal games and put on a show, I know, but this is an $8.5M goalie who's clearly past his prime and our next potential stud is still ~2 years out. =/
