Conks might "deserve" a rest, but I doubt very highly he "wants" a rest.

Truth is I feel our chances are better with Conklin in nets. He went all the way to game 7 of the AHL finals last year. This is pretty big to him also. Bigger. He wants it. He made some pretty incredible saves last night. Alot of those 40 something shots were quality chances.

I remember years ago in Lalimes rookie season in Pittsburg he was keeping my buddy Wregs out of the net because he was unbeaten in 15 "or something" games. He ended up playing more games consecutively than the unbeaten streak itself.

There's always the chance that if we started Valy in Columbus we would have gotten 0 points on the road. Then everyone woulda been down MacTs throat.

MacT may have thought that the Jackets was the night to make some hay on the trip. That way at least they would come back .500 for sure. Didn't happen though.
