The Antropov goal, maybe you could fault him for rebound control, but I'd fault the four guys on the ice for running around like chickens with their heads cut off chasing the puck... and Brisebois with his patened "own blueline pinch."
So how exactly was he bad in the 2nd?
Maybe my perspective is different, I admit I did not see the Zherdev goal, I had left the room for a moment. But the third one was again blown coverage and a point blank shot through a screen. Those goals go in, be it Price, Tier II Bantam Goalie or Brodeur.
The shootout was not good, but it's a crapshoot anyway. And we had no business being in one.
