PHT Morning Skate: Devils’ woes in shootout rage on
Yep…..the shootout BS may be their downfall from a playoff spot.
Looking at another team…the Leafs and they may make the playoffs because of their shootout record.
PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.
It was noble of Cory Schneider to take the blame for the Devils losing in a shootout to the Avalanche after making 37 saves through 65 minutes but giving up two goals in the skills competition. New Jersey is 0-8 this year in the shootout and if they miss out on the playoffs, they’ll know exactly why. (Fire & Ice)
The Penguins’ defensemen getting healthy was a bad thing for Simon Despres — he was sent back to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)
The Red Wings may have plenty of injuries, but rookie forward Tomas Jurco playing in the closing moments when trying to tie the game makes for a high compliment of his game. (Detroit Free Press)
