In the last game there were 0 minutes of good effort. Tonight there were about 41. Lets try to make it 60 next time out. MTL-6 TB-2 John Grahame, who was a trainwreck, allowed 6 goals on 22 shots. Combine bad goaltending with some sloppy turnovers, and you get killed 6-2 by a lesser team. Post mortem from [url=http://www.nhl.com/scores/htmlreports/20052006/GS020900.HTM]NHL.com.[/url]
