So I guess it's slightly better having him start. I think his confidence might be a little shot after losing the starting job to Dipietro. If he starts against us, it could go two ways. Either he comes out with an axe to grind and plays great, or he over thinks it and plays horribly. If it's the latter, there's a good chance he'll play Tampa out of the playoffs.
Well that could be said but TB last win, 2-1 win against Montreal...Burke stopped 31 out of 32. Before that, I dont know when was the last time they won. Its only one game but if Burke was getting into the streaky mood ,ala Dipietro recently, it needs to wait.
