No, it's not.

If you watched any of this game, you would have seen that Pavelec made NO ATTEMPT to stop Erik Cole on the second Canes goal.

The Atlanta defenseman on the Canes third goal made a half-assed attempt at swatting a puck while letting Joni Pitaken skate around him like he was a slower version of Marek Malik.

I don't buy any argument that Atlanta wouldn't have cared if the Rangers scored first last night. Why would they have gone into a trap after they went up two then? They played that game to WIN, not for jobs, not for stats, not for themselves, THEY PLAYED THE GAME TO WIN TO HURT THE RANGERS. Where was that fire against a similarily desperate Canes team?
