140 Or More: Blanked At The LEC

Thoughts that were too big for tweets on a mostly forgettable night for the Chiefs:

– Squandered opportunity for the Chiefs on Friday in the 5-0 loss. Langley’s a very good club, but I don’t think they looked their best in the first 40 minutes. This was a Chiefs team with a different outlook – something they could rally around – and it was frustrating to see the lack of execution at times. Little things – waist high saucer passes, unable to get good looks on a couple odd-man rushes, seeing the power play struggle to get set on the way to an 0 for 7, communication breakdowns defensively on a couple of the Langley goals – Chilliwack doesn’t have time to adjust here with 16 games left. They’ve got to play their best hockey. We didn’t see that Friday. Simple.

– Give the Rivermen credit here – They weren’t world beaters in the first two periods, but closed out the game very well in the third. Their Captain, Mitch McLain finished with three points, including the 3-0 goal, a killer early in the third. Shots on goal were only 14-11 through two. Langley rose up and closed out in the final period. That’s what good clubs do on home ice.

– The Chiefs needed someone to make a play on Friday to get them going. Only 22 shots and most came from the outside. Austin Plevy’s not here anymore. There’s guys in that room more than capable of being a game breaker from time to time. I’m curious to see who it can be, but a spark has to come from somewhere, because in the stretch drive of the season….No time to be shut out on consecutive nights. We’ll see what Saturday night holds at Prospera Centre.
