'"This was our first real bonehead game," coach Lindy Ruff said. "I don't know how long I have to go back. There was no energy. I think this is a real good wakeup call. It's a step back. It was unacceptable and ugly. They didn't hit anybody, they did not get involved or enganged. I think for two periods we didn't win an offensive zone faceoff. It was a poor, poor effort."'
