If he's on top of his game we can start trading chances with LA if we get really desperate for a goal. The blues seem reluctant to try that with Elliott in net.
I agree, I dont wanna end this playoffs with the feeling: "what if we had gave Halak a chance for game 6-7?". He stole a bunch of games for Montreal in the playoffs.
I know Elliot has been great, and I dont want to take anything from him. But our Defence is probably the best in the league over 6 players.
Elliot got his chance on April 1, just when the Blues HAD to start winning games, they were outside top8! And by that said, our team just started to work as a TEAM and play the D we can live up to.. This the biggest reason to why Elliot have a low GAA.
Elliot is good, he doesnt steal games, and havent done this playoff either.. Our 2 wins was a teamwin. Or for the most part, its our D who won the 2 games for us.
Im pretty sure we are gonna need our goaltender to steal one for us tonight on the road vs LA.
That said, there is no way they start Halak tonight..
