I can’t describe how disappointed I was in my team’s effort tonight or lack of such,” Parker said. “We had a lot of key guys just disappear, I thought. We left Kieran out to dry a number of times. We gave up four power-play goals – one was an empty-netter – and they didn’t have to work for any of them. We turned it over and gave up opportunity after opportunity.
“We looked jumpy as heck. We looked like we were afraid to lose from the get-go. When you go out and try to not lose, you usually do.”
