i'm sure the details are different for every goalie, but the course i suggested last year, is applicable to this year - give him time

Laviolette refused to single out his goalie. He never singles out any player in defeat. It’s always “we.”

“With regard to yesterday, there’s things we could have done better as a team defensively,” he said. “We could have blocked more shots. We could have played with more desperation. We could have scored more goals. We could have defended better in our end. We could have gotten saves.

“No one is exempt from the loss yesterday. We are all included in that. In order to beat a team that is having a good year and sits in first place in the Eastern Conference, it’s got to be a better effort. That doesn’t exclude anyone who comes into this locker room right now.

“That’s the best way to put it. It’s not as simply as you want to make it out to be. Our game has to be better. It’s all pieces ... Generally speaking, we all need to elevate our game.”

he gets it.
