Any which way to lose

December 12, 2006

With apologies to Clint Eastwood.  This road trip has been the pits.  The canes have managed to lose every game on it in every imaginable way.  Outplayed and shutout for 60 minutes?  Check.  Out ref’ed, out played for 40 minutes?  Check.  Outplayed for 40 minutes then showing heart and coming back to force overtime and losing in the extra frame?  Check.  Mailing it in with a 1 goal lead in the third and getting blown out?  Check.

I hope the boys have learned something about themselves on this trip, because it’s been pretty abysmal to watch and nothing good seems to come out of it.  But hopefully things will look up, home cooking is around the corner, and some days off to heal (and lick) their wounds.  Hopefully a reeling opponent to play at home on a Friday night will be just what the doctor ordered.
