Here is what Thrashers coach Craig Ramsay said following a 6-1 loss to Dallas about the state of his team, losers of four straight and nine of 12.
“We are a fragile team right at the moment. We expected a bit of a roller coaster this year. We’ve grown as a team. I thought the response from the team, for 45 minutes, was excellent. As soon as something went against us, we didn’t have the right response. We talked a lot about discipline. We have all year long. A four-minute penalty late is just not good enough. We have to stick together. We played most of this game like a team. We were good on the bench. We were good on the ice. We supported each other. I liked that a lot, but we have to understand that 60 minutes a night is required to play in the National Hockey League.”
