Last nights game sucked, end of story, today is a new day and this weekend is a new weekend, forget about it and move on. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

I do not blame Marty for this goal. Yes he threw the puck away right to him, but Marty was trying to make something happen and give his full effort to try and turn this game around. Yes the puck ended in the back of the net but I will commend Marty for trying.
