"The biggest thing that sticks out for me is the type of mistakes we've made in the last two games," said coach Claude Julien. "There's mistakes. This is a game of mistakes. But the type of mistakes that you make can make a difference. Bad pinches. We haven't given up two-on-ones like that in a long time. We gave those up. Ill-advised decisions. Even their first goal, we gave them that one. We didn't help ourselves tonight. We had some chances when it was 3-2 to tie it up. We had a couple scoring chances. Had we scored, maybe that would have made a difference. But they come back and score on the two-on-one. That kind of put the nail in the coffin."
* Zach Hamill has been returned to Providence. Hamill was a healthy scratch today after appearing in two games on the third line.
* Milan Lucic said his right foot went numb after blocking a Niklas Kronwall shot. Initially, Lucic couldn't push off his foot. But Lucic walked off the pain and didn't miss a shift.
