Sometimes one team outplays the other and doesn’t win. Sometimes the opponent’s backup goalie looks like the second coming of Martin Brodeur in his prime. Sometimes T.J. Oshie doesn’t score in the shootout.
And sometimes, like last night, all of these things happen at the same time. Alas.
Time to pick out the bright spots - and the lowlights - of last night’s lineup... and then put this one behind us.
