"We could never get on a good run where you go six or seven and one, or you win five in a row. We never got that good run going," Ruff said after Saturday's 4-3 shootout win against Colorado. "I said yesterday that the probably the biggest disappointment was there were games we really deserved to win if we finished some of the plays, didn't hit posts and missed empty nets to stay on a run or keep something alive. We didn't quite have the finish we had in the previous year."
"I think it kind of sums up the year, actually," Ruff said. "We were leaving and got reviewed. We had plenty of great opportunities in overtime to put it away, a breakaway, a 2-on-0. We could never get on a good run where you go 6 or 7 and 1, or you win five in a row. Probably the biggest disappointment was there was games where we really deserved to win if we finished some of the plays and didn't hit posts, missed empty nets."
