"My goal for the game: outshoot the opponent. Even if we don't win, I want to turn the game off knowing that this team tried and put forth a great effort. I sure as hell didn't have that feeling last game."- Me in yesterday's game preview
I really need to be careful what I wish for. The Canes outshot, outchanced and outplayed the Buffalo Sabres for a good portion of last night's game but they ended up losing 1-0 and haven't scored a goal in almost seven periods. It's rough times but I didn't think Carolina played that bad of a game last night and could have won had a few bounces gone their way. I also thought that the team could have done a better job at getting traffic in front of Buffalo goalie Jhonas Enroth. The team was generating chances, but Enroth saw most of them the entire way and that was a big factor.
