I love the **** Kessel gets. Really? Let's rip on the guy with 34 goals, 37 assists? I swear if we had Sid people would complain he doesn't hit enough :

I will agree with you and say that Wilson did make an error by sticking by Reimer for too long. By that time, Gus was cold and back to his terrible play.

Part of this is on Wilson as he should of platooned both goaltenders more effectively to keep them both sharp. But, part of this is on Gus as a good goaltender should be able to stay sharp without playing. It's what makes a good goaltender.
