Yup. I don't know what him and Diaz were doing behind the net. We had a clear chance to get it out. TONS of time and then they try this screwed up reverse that ends up in a great chance for Ottawa and Carey couldn't make the proper save.
While Carey is getting a lot of heat (justifiably), down the stretch (and I've posted quite a bit about captain kelowna), Gorges has been horrible. He used to be the guy that you rely on. Now, he's the liability. Doesn't block shots like he used to, rather he gets in the way. He battles hard for sure and that could be used by guys like Ryder, but the results are getting worse by the day, something I did NOT expect. He'll now have one solid game out of 5. He does have the experience though so I'm hoping he knows how to fix this. Both his and Diaz have the problem of only being able to handle the puck on their forehand. Paired together it makes for some big time problems. I'm just glad there was no interview from him post-game.
