08:25 AM ET 12.05 | Sunday became Jonas Hiller's turn to vent. An agitated Hiller did a slow burn as he recounted the overall breakdown of his team in front of him, his volume rising as each word was uttered after a 5-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild. Nick Johnson's tiebreaking goal clanging past him off Johnson's skate in the third period as Ducks defenseman Luca Sbisa went to defend the stick and not the body was the final straw for Hiller, who hasn't won consecutive games since the season's second week. ... "It looks like we're there but we're not really there," Hiller said. "We're kind of physically there but probably mentally already in the other zone or, I don't know, still in the dressing room. I don't know what."

Meh, 5-3 ain't nothin'. I wonder how the Flames Karlsson feels?

Unfortunately, the Flmaes shot their wad against the Oilers and had nothing left for Lulongo who was ripe for the picking.

Brookbank, Foster, Fowler, Guenin, Lydman, Sbisa??? Top six D on any AHL team.

They'll have more cracks at Robooby and he'll remain ripe for the picking even then.

BB has announced he will have a talk with Hiller. Noting that since Hiller is usually quiet, it probably isn't too big of a deal, but if he continues to bad mouth team memebers it could backfire.
