last night's game had nothing to do with the Flyers, or any scoring slump. it was a simple case of a goalie playing great.
I will say, however, that there are a few things that could be tweaked. Carle and Coburn, while playing a bit better, are still making some dumb plays. Bourdon and Gusstafson -rookies- are 3&4 right now. But if it's a confidence issue (looks like it), you can't demote them. And What is Lava thinking - Hartnell on the ice 4 on 4? He hasn't scored much lately, and #hartnelldown in OT means a 4-3 break the other way. Why put your best shooter last in the SO, knowing their goalie hasn't allowed any SO goals all year, yours has only stopped 2? Why Simmonds in the fairy dance at all?
