Thomas has now gone 11-0 vs. Ottawa.
You’ve got to be kidding me.
And think, we face the Bruins two more times in the next 10 games.
Well, the good news was Snoopy. He looked good in net, and here’s hoping Elliott getting the call ahead of him gets him going, because if the defense plays anything like they did in the first period tonight, he’s gonna have to be sharp…VERY sharp.
I can’t remember the last time I saw a player stand in front of the net, with a defenseman on either side of him, and not even get touched. Nice D Kuba, you sure are showing #65 the ropes. I’m getting more than a little tired of the gentle giant routine, methinks somebody is happier cashing checks than throwing them.
Honestly, what more can be said? That was a horrendous performance, and Clouston needs to be kicked in the pants for going to Elliott ahead of Leclaire. I’m not saying they would have won with him in nets, but going to your back-up, in one of the biggest games in the standings? Honestly, I don’t get it, it’s not like Elliott was tearing it up before Pascal came back, and do you really want to start playing around with goaltending at this point in the season if the back-up isn’t standing on his head? A bad call, IMO.
Shake it off, and move on.
At least those below them in the standings lost as well. Talk about a missed opportunity.
