But racer after that he really generated almost nothing against the ducks and what this one get away again. Yeah you look at the game as a whole and then they deserved a better feet the first period they were the better team by a mile but they couldn't cash and they give up the only goal on really the only scoring chance the -- that. Both teams are kind of flat. In the US second period. Anaheim adds another goal in there they're up two to nothing in your. You're wondering where Dallas is going in this game yeah they come out three minutes into the third period it's brand new again it's tied to. I -- think you seem to stop not only stop going that direction but started to turn pucks over and you're gonna hear -- that after this game tonight ballpark security. And made some mistakes you know you don't usually see two defenseman go to one guy and essentially give up a break away like on going whose school.

As he tries to get his rhythm back going again. He was fighting the flu and that stat guys a little bit too when he missed the game. On the weekend and they just need they need that to be better their defensive game it was the weirdest of games because their defensive game was so good for sole line.

They got a big one on Thursday against the Los Angeles Kings try to stay up whether -- on Thursday night from Staples Center.
