He threw at least 8 solid hits tonight, he fought, and the penalty he took was on Gauthier... I'll take those any day.
Oliwa did make the first move, if anything, Salo may have been back a little too far in his net. Would we be complaining if Iginla made the exact same move? Oliwa made a great move, and especially because it came from him, it makes it even harder for a goaltender to stop.
The dumb penalty he took did create a spark but it wasn't for the Oilers. He threw some good checks but wasn't dominating in the zone and that is what I expect. I didn't say he played a bad game but he didn't play a great game IMO.
I am not blaming salo for that goal but I thought he guessed by going down and has been doing that all year.
I am not blaming Salo for the loss but I believe he can play better.
