Dogs looked like a tired team tonight. The short bench and three game sin three nights is taking a toll.
Well the tired team "should" be nanaimo. The dogs have got to get people in front of Bovin. They have got to get screens on this guy. He doesn't let out rebounds. And he is seeing most shots. Sucks when you run up against a hot goalie. Alberni has got to hit. And keep hitting. The ref was brutal. Missed an open ice interference against Mich. A trip on Hatch and a total Pitch fork in front of their net on Lewis. That being said you have got to play thru that. They have got to stand on this goalie and go to the net. The outside shots going wide aren't working. The set PP they use working it down low on the right side of the goaltender is so obvious its brutal. Bovin just tolds hard on the post and the clippers work us for the puck. We have got to stop losing control in our own end. Frank has got to control those juicy rebounds. The forth goal was a rebound to his left and then out to a wrap around.
All that being said The Rogic, Hatch, and Lewis line are playing like they want this. And Ryan Renz has elevated his game and is one timing the puck when he can. What a steller player he is becoming.
You won't win a game with only one line playing well and hard. Game 4 looks like as close as you can get to a must win. The Bulldogs are being out goaltended and maybe out coached? Who works on the PP? The number 1 line needs to step it up as well. As frustrating as it is, you can't blame the ref.
