Steamrolled is a pretty good way to describe last night's events. I'd also go with embarrassing.

Here let me explain it: you're trying to be two fancy and not getting enough traffic in front of the net and not enough pucks on net. Do that. Get dirty and out freaking work the other team when you have a man advantage. There ya go. Problem solved.

Quine’s quickness shines in Peterborough | Red Wings Central
The Red Wings third round pick from last year's draft is stepping up his scoring big time in the OHL. I must say, between Alan Quine, Tomas Jurco, Marek Tvrdon, and Xavier Ouellet on the blue line, the Wings had a real solid draft. Of course, we won't know for sure until a few years from now, but the potential is there. If two of those guys develop into to top players, it's s huge success.

Shawn Thornton bests just about everyone | ProHockeyTalk
Everyone in Boston thinks that everyone else in the league loves them and hates the Canucks. Is this really how everyone feels? I get the sense that everyone just wants both teams to shut up.
