Overtime losses suck

Canes lost 3-2 in overtime in Game 3 last night.

Okay, Canes, I'm going to make a rule right now. If you go into overtime, win. If you're going to lose, please at least do me the decency of losing in regulation, so I don't lose an hour of sleep in the process of watching you crap out. Thank you.


Well, this game was okay. Not enough to win, obviously, but not horrifically bad, either. Definitely not near the control that they had of the second game. Power play was positively horrific, although the Canes managed to cut down on the stupid penalties taken.

Chad LaRose scored, which was cool. So did Ryan Bayda, representing the fourth line, which didn't play too bad.

I feel like there's nothing to analyze - both teams played hard but that's about it. And the Canes didn't win, which makes it miserable to watch them play so hard and then fail in the end. Because there's no big excuse to pin the loss on. All the Canes need to do is play just a little bit better, and the game is theirs.

Here's to playing a little bit better in tomorrow's game.

Chad LaRose: 1 goal
Playoffs: 1 goal, 1 assist
