Great move by Brunner, but did the refs miss a slash?
No matter what, the Senators were not happy with their performance in the 5-2 loss...
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
A frustrated (Bryan) Murray read the club the riot act afterwards in an eight-minute meeting.
“It was message from the top of expectations and what we should be expecting of each other,” said alternate captain Chris Phillips.
“I wouldn’t characterize it as (the riot act). It wasn’t friendly. We’ve got to be better.
“We’ve got to expect more from ourselves and be better as a team. Word it how you want I guess.”
Coach Paul MacLean isn't happy at all.
He questioned the club's work ethic and leadership.
"For the most part our effort was not good enough to win," said MacLean. "We have to find a way to come the rink and work harder.
"We're an inconsistent group. We can't get the puck out of our zone. We play good against good teams. We play bad against teams below us. That's just a lack of focus, a lack of leadership and that's a lack of us wanting to play in the National Hockey League and be an elite team. We are a long, long way from being an elite team."
Here is the TSN call and view of the goal..
