Johnson has been the best player on the Steelers team. He (along with Matheson) almost definitely play the most minutes on the team and in all situations. It's not a surprise that he's -3 when the team has been playing how it has.
Was it me, or was that 2 poor teams making the game look fast and open. Great to watch as a spectator but so so many errors, bad passes, and good old Mr. Noble screwing it up for the Blaze with his penalty at the end of regulation.
Blaze looked on their knees in the last 10 minutes but they could have seen out that game and won it....as they deserved to. Lake and Ainsworth were supported by a hardworking bunch of forwards and Kopriva, their new goalie, was outstanding. Unfortunately, a very badly timed silly penalty by Noble cost them that game.
Whilst O'Connor is undoubtedly a top class defenceman whose return will improve the Steelers, I thought Sheffield were very average. Early game their defence was chaotic (and why were the commentators talking about the great chemistry between O'Connor and Davy Phillips?). Unfortunately another win will only encourage Simms to gush on Twitter...
I enjoyed that game. Sheffield are not back to their old selves but they have improved a lot. I think they will start climbing the table soon. Blaze looked good at times also but did look knackered at the end and that nob Noble cost them the game.
