We were chasing all game, Monty was severely outcoached (Berube put Tarasenko out against Polak every chance he got). We whiffed on four empty nets, by my count.
Still only lost by one goal. I think we'll actually be fine, and might earn a split on Saturday.
Yeah, I feel oddly confident after this game too. Everything went perfectly for them and perfectly wrong for us and it was still a one goal game.
Quote from Montgomery (per Shapiro's article on The Athletic):
Montgomery felt the Stars were better offensively than media members were giving them credit for.
“I thought we were in place for the second shots, I thought we had traffic in front of Binnington. I didn’t think it was an easy night for him,” Montgomery said. “So there was a lot of our game that I like, and there are areas we need to get better at. The physicality and intensity of the game probably wasn’t what we were doing against Nashville, and those are areas we need to get better. You guys seem to have a different opinion than I do of the game. I don’t think I’m giving you the answers you want.”
