I have no issues with Auld starting tonight even though tomorrow is the easier game. JM wanted his team to have the better goaltender on the 2nd game of the back 2 back.


As for the theories of the team not trying as hard with Auld in nets; I think the opposite is true. The team is as motivated to win for the back-up, or even more, than for the starter. Each game Auld plays is extremely significant for him and his career -- players respect that.
