Team Explanation
Can someone tell me if we did good or bad? Shots and faceoffs didn't look good but then again that doesn't tell the whole story.

In terms of possession we got outplayed, but honestly the defense that was played while being attacked was great, just couldn't get the puck out. Yes there were a lot of shots but not a lot of them were good chances. The kings are a very experienced team and that showed with lots of possession, just looked like their talent wasn't there anymore. Basically: great game by Hutton, good game by the defense (just had trouble clearing), and an outstanding game by the third line. Hopefully this gets Mittelstadt going.

Areas to build upon and continue:
While he made great saves, I thought Hutton was always in position. Can we credit Mike Bales for this? BTW, Carter set a Sabre record for most saves made to get a shut out.
Buffalo did not allow a shot over the last 8 minutes.
Mittelstadt is finally rewarded for his improved performance.
The PK finally played well. The PP was better than against the Ducks.
Areas to improve:
I also thought that too many times instead of clearing the pressure, the Sabre forwards too often were trying to make a play. Now I was not at the game, but maybe they were trying to make a stretch pass which I could not see, but IMO the coach has to be more concerned with protecting the lead at that point (get the puck out of the zone) v trying to pad the lead (making a perfect play).
They forgot how to win face offs, which allowed the Kings to control the play.

Thanks! You are both Legends!

Mitts goal was good but, Sheary's shot...😱 WOW. That was amazing and is what Mitts deserved this game! 2 goals and a primary assist...He should have more points IMO but he has been unlucky. Wonder if moving Ollofson to RW and Sam down, Mitts to 2C and Marcus to LW. Skinner with Eichel. Also... You then call Tage Thompson up and play him as 3C...or Asplund

I think we've been having too much success to change things that much. Also another thing i forgot to mention, Olofsson finally looked comfortable out there 5on5 and played a solid game. I still think moving him to his off-wing (which would require reinhart to also do so) might help his 5on5 play even more.

Hopefully they continue to succeed, I think Buffalo Fans deserve this😂
