Depends how the team reacts to each goalies weak goals. If Crawford is ******** the bed, and Emery comes in and plays well for a game and then ***** the bed, I have no problem going back to Crawford.
This is not your typical G situation, so it's entirely possible the situation isn't your typical #1 guy. That's all I'm saying. I'm not saying it's going to happen (switching G's), but it far more possible than it ever has been for any team in the playoffs.
