    At least this piece of junk offense and their bullshit coach found a way to win their 5th game of the season.

    But can they gut out a 6th win? Time will tell.....

    Not stellar scoring against Rochester's old as dirt / slow defence, but, Vinc was playing hard and confident......Held 'em to 11 on 55 or something (2 goals were empty netters). Came sorta close to stealing it.

    Reid Reinholdt led the team in scoring tonight.

    So suck it, haters :)

    after four games / eighty goals, these guys started believing their own bullshtt.

    no goals since early in the second, and limited hope there will be any

    Don't waste your breath. Rock management doesn't give a ****.

    They might never score another goal ever again......

    Too soon for sarcasm. They sure won't score enough to be useful when it matters.

    They 100% could get shutout on bobblehead day next week.....

    for those keeping score, there were two goals.

    one at about 5 minutes of the fourth, the other in garbage time.

    i am back to the #FireManning side of things.

    like, at what point does Codd just tell his guys to take it to the hole and shoot every trip up?

    they couldnt do much worse, might do better.

    I was content to let him finish the season knowing he likely couldn't be replaced until the offseason. I'm now so sick of his crap I'd be happy to see Sanderson take the helm in the interim. The Rock can still salvage the season if they ditch him now.

    It's at that point. Old school two-way play to shake things up. It's better than nothing.

    There's truth to this but the O has sputtered with him in the line up this season too.

    It's better with Schreiber, but, outside of a couple gutsy/athletic chances per game, he's just another guy taking a lot of shots from the top......if he's hot, they have a chance, if he's not, we're still f'ed.

    Posted sometime during the four game run of too much offence.

    We're in the second half of the season, and, it's not working.

    Manning adjusts, the league adjusts back, good night. Here's what the Rock are left with.

    Hickey ... flat, uninspired play, even during a team hot streak.
    Jones ... getting prone to flat, uninspired play.
    Hellyer ... great performance during 4 game streak. Now prone to flat, uninspired play.
    Powerplay ... 4th or 5th in the league but remove the 4 game streak and it tells a much different story. It sometimes surrenders more short-handed goals than the points it scores.
    Cutters? Can't think of anyone consistently effective.
    Transition? Non-existent, outside 4 game streak. Burns, Harris, Edwards, etc. have disappeared.

    Unacceptable.

    Right now, it's working enough to put the Rock in the playoffs in the East. But they are just one loss from slipping into the basement.

    got the season tiebreaker over Rochester, and still a chance to grab it over Buf and NE....those game matter huge.

    this said, if they cant score 10 goals in the regular season, once the refs hoop the whistles for playoff ball, they ain't scoring 8, and they ain't advancing.
