The Bulls fell to the Idaho Steelheads last night, 2-1. The Bulls took an early lead, but Idaho outshot them through the game so it wasn't a terribly surprising outcome. What was surprising was how composed the Bulls looked, despite the condition of their roster.
Tarasov and Tam have gone to Worcester, Crescenzi and Devane went back to Toronto, Viedensky is still injured... add to that, several players had flu symptoms. They had every excuse to really fall apart. Yet the game was a good, balanced, defensive game with neither team giving the other a lot of room. Of the team's performance, Alternate Captain Scott Langdon said:
I think we had good possession in their end, I think we had a good forecheck. Sometimes you just can't put the puck in the net for whatever reason... It'd be different if we spent the whole game in our own end but we didn't so we just have to move on to the next one.
Sacha Guimond was loaned to Worcester today, so that leaves another hole in the Bulls defense. That hole will be even bigger as Scott Langdon was suspended for last night's hit on Idaho's Mathieu Tousignant:
