    Hey, it was a good game and the did actually make it a game by not llosing by 20-30 points, also i wouuld rather take this loss than a 6-3 win, like we did aginst buffalo.

  2. Chris says:

    Amen, Matt. This was the kind of game we should have been playing all season. If we could have had this effort for 12 games, we’d probably be like 6-6. We did all we could. If games HAVE to be lost, this is how it should be done. We weren’t sucessful but at least we were presentable.
