When will Murray ever learn that he can't come away out of the net in a shoot-out and just skate straight back and not even move on the player coming in to score. He must stay back and at least try to fill the net to stop the shot.

Every other team must love it when it comes down to a shoot-out and they know it's an easy goal!!

The Game was lost in the second period.

First, Nurse was continuously out of position being the "hero" making the big rushes up the right side while his co-defenseman had to cover his wrong side and the likes of McCann and Tolchinsky having to drop back to play defense.

This changed in the third period, the coach may have said something to Nurse between periods, because he played position and the Greyhounds caught up

Overall, the Greyhounds played very well and came up against a hot Barrie goaltender. In most cases this game would have been in the win column

Second, a bench penalty is not an asset, you rarely score shorthanded though when it happens, it's quite entertaining.

Third, Murrey has to practice intercepting the puck being passed across the front of the net, approximately half of the goals I have seen scored on him are a result of this type of play.
