Watched the Replay of the First Half...

Cottle said- just before the half with the score 8-4- the teams have actually been much more evenly matched then the score indicates. I didn't remember it this way and sort of hard to see it that way based on the final outcome, but after watching the replay I think he was correct. We wasted far too many opportunities and suffered from some bad luck. We were outshot 15-6 and out ground balled 13-5 in the first period yet we were only down 5-3. We killed 2 EMO's with the score tied 1-1 but failed to convert on O and gave them a 3rd EMO which they capitalize on go go up 2-1. We win the next face-off but then have it stripped and they convert in transition to go up 3-1. We convert our EMO after the moving pick/delay of game making it 3-2. We win the ensuing FO but Herring immediately throws it away over Kraus head and they convert again 4-2. We win the 2nd period FO and Conrad immediately throws it away and they convert making it 6-3. We then proceed to have doorstep looks over the last 10 or so minutes of the 2nd. 3 by Laviano and 2 by Conrad which resulted in 0 goals. In fairness, 1 by Laviano hit the pipe, 1 was a nice save the other was just a bad shot (probably should have gone BTB). 1 of Conrads hit the pipe and the other was a quick stick that bounced and I think hit the post and bounced out...hard to fathom we get 0-5 from these looks. Add to that a Kraus wing rip that just missed and hit the pipe and another hard bouncer from Conrad that was a beautiful save and we were pretty unlucky.
