I agree with Bill mostly...but Timonen being spent and hurt had to play a part in him trying to get assistance from Bryz although Bryz might have called for it to show he can be Brodeuresque....too bad he looked more like Mike Richter who used to be particularly bad with the puck despite his famed career...

* Ilya Bryzgalov actually played pretty well throughout the series when it came to stopping non-deflected shots and rebounds from in close. But his puck handling was a ticking time bomb. The bomb went off in the first period last night on New Jersey's backbreaking second goal. I still have no idea why Bryzgalov didn't cover the puck rather than trying to play through David Clarkson. For those who blame Kimmo Timonen for the mishap, it's not all that uncommon for a defenseman to play the puck back to his goalie. That one was on Bryzgalov alone for taking too long and then making the ill-advised flip of the puck right into Clarkson and the net.
