Overall, I think most people are confident in Prusek for a game or two. He is a very good back-up and relief pitcher so to speak, as he tends to step in on a part-time basis and provide great goaltending.

It's when you ask him to play three of four games in a row that the bad goals, and good start-bad start thing starts to appear.

Lalime as the starter and Prusek as the back-up should work. Prusek for game one also wouldn't be the end of the world, because I think he'd be solid and the pressure would really fall on the Leafs to take game 1. The reality is, the Sens are now the clear underdog - a role they've always floursihed under.

I'm looking forward to seeing how both teams handle it - overall, I think it'll be a great series.
