Fair enough, and I'll go with that. I always say Moose is a great backup. Probably the best in the league that's purely a backup, but maybe with the puck handling it pushes him out. He played not so great against the Caps, but it happens. I don't think he had much of a chance on any against the Isles except maybe that last one, and the game was far past decided. Moose is a good sporadic start guy, can be a starter temporarily.

I still think it's a motivation issue. Execution if you will. We've gotten blown out by some pretty bad teams like the Caps, and Isles. Sure the Isles have Tavares, and the Caps have Ovy, but the Pens have Malkin, and Crosby and are on a way better team. We got blown out by them early, but picked up two very convincing wins in a row against them.
