I dont' think Ellis has played poorly. He's not letting in soft goals, he's getting beat by screened(usually by his own guys) shots from the point. He made one mistake in the Washington game, but the other goals being scored against him have been sheer defensive breakdowns. Trotz has been quick-hook trying to "spark the team" by pulling the goalie, but i think he's making it worse. I'd go as far as to say that if he had left Ellis in last night, we would have won the game.

This is eerily similar to 02-03, where we made a late push for the playoffs, Legwand went down, and we collapsed at the end of the season to miss.
