Weiss is sad. He's been nothing but loyal and hardworking, never one to complain all his years here. Now he gets deservedly two shifts in the third. :/
I think he was caught out of position a bit on the Chara shot. Should've stayed back in the cage a bit more and used his size instead of trying to challenge. He was a bit too far up in the paint to stop that top shelf shot. It was a great goal by Chara.

That and he needs to work on controlling rebounds. If he holds that first shot on the first goal, it never happens. They had many other decent chances off of rebounds too. His size in the cage is going to make guys shoot straight on and try to get rebounds instead of going for corners and holes. If he can limit them, he can turn into a top tier goalie in this league.

A good second game effort though overall.
