Florida coach Tom Rowe put much of the blame for Saturday night's 2-1 loss to Dallas on Reilly Smith, who left his check Jamie Benn alone on the winning goal.

Rarely does a coach blame an individual player for a loss, but Rowe seemed to do just that. "[Reimer] played great, but when the top guys are cheating for offense, it doesn’t help. It’s pretty simple,’’ Rowe spit out. "We’re not going to make the playoffs playing like that. … All I know is Reilly Smith is blowing the zone, doing exactly what he’s not supposed to do.’’ Yikes. If for some reason you are relying on Smith, we would bench him for now.
