I think if you hit Dougie a time or two he plays to avoid getting hit the rest of the game. And he doesn’t bust ass getting to pucks. I wouldn’t spend a ton to bring him back if he doesn’t find a scoring touch.
Unfortunate, bad bounce in off Skjei’s skate on the winner, that was just an unlucky bounce after Tampa did some hard work down low. Roddy sounded like he was pleased with the effort just got beat by a great team who wanted it a bit more.
TB had the jump for much of this game and yet we were in it until the end. Bonehead pass in our zone by Skjei leads to a goal, but we were lucky to be in it, considering how Tampa was skating faster and beating us to the puck - until the 3rd period when I thought we got a lot better. Still, a hard-fought and enjoyable game. Agree with the comments about Hamilton....he looked slow or uninterested for chunks of this game.
