Saying Pav is having a slump is pretty dumb considering if we didn't have pav this season we would be asking erie what its like to win a game. Yeah thats the way to go play a kid thats won like 1 game in his career in the net with no first round pick this year. well at least we would have the 41st pick overall this year.
Most people who have followed this team all season would agree that in the past 4 or 5 games goaltending has faltered badly when in truth it has been the teams best asset
I would have Dekort against Sarnia,afterall in the last game at Sarnia he won 3-2 in a shootout and that was when Sarnia had Murphy and Galchenyuk in the lineup
Pavelka has played poorly the last 3 previous games especially in Sag and London
It may be no coincidence that once his girlfriend went back home to Europe prior to the plymouth game his play improved a bit
Coaches often go with a goalie who may have played well against an opponent and in this situation to go with Dekort was the right call
Stats are not everything I agree but combined with history in alot of cases it s the right thing to do
