[QUOTE]Agreed. By the start of the 3rd yesterday, we were missing Horton, Peverley, Paille, Pouliot, Bergeron, McQuaid, Rask, Khudobin, Sauve - and we still had Corvo - against a very hot club. In addition, thanks to NBC's dollar power, we started two games in two cities in less than 24 hours with clocks moving ahead one hour ... so 2 games, 2 cities, and less than 23 hours. Perhaps NOT time for a nutty.

Although the injuries are clearly an issue, that's still an excuse. Even before Peverly went down, the roots of this problem were there.
Now, some are just pointing to injuries, apparently in the game itself yesterday, as to why they got outworked yet again 2 weekend games in a row. Or, even in games post Al Star break.
Remmeber the headline by Thornton I think it was, post All Star break about feeling rejuvenated/re-charged? They've been doing this since the All Star break. It's now March 12th.
It's about character and playing like you have a set. They have it, they just lost it.
