damn now that offsides goal is WAY more of a screwup - 1 goal game otherwise.

Every goaltender has bad games, but coming from a former Thrasher fan, to where Mason lost his number one spot to Ondrej Pavelec, are you honestly trying to convince people that Mason is a better Goaltender than Rinne? I'm sorry, but Lundqvist and Rinne are the best Goaltenders in the League bar none, Mason is maybe a bottom five. Just, just stop. He was embarrassing on the Thrashers who couldn't play defense to save their lives, and Nashville has arguably the best defense in the league and Mason still sucks.

There is no need for further discussion on the matter.

So for everyone dogging Mason, who I will admit needed to be pulled, how many goals would Rinne have stopped? Every situation was some guy alone in front, I would say Rinne would have stopped the first and second goal maybe but he would have allowed the other 4, the defense was garbage today.

I also have to say the refs screwed us big time. Even subtracted the fluke goal, we are down by one now, but you can tell that goal hit Mason's confidence, maybe its tied, maybe we are only down by a goal, but the linesman screwed us big time.

It would be so awesome if we win this one
And it's possible, we have enough chances and Rinne is in net now.
Let's go Preds

I traded for him 2 seasons ago on my full keeper fantasy team - part of a package deal along with Zach Bogosian that sent Lucic away and I got accused of tanking on purpose to gift a player to another guy. I knew he'd pay off some day.

Yeah it certainly doesn't look like the usual Preds so far.

I think everyone thought they had Presidents day off

You hit the nail on the head about his time in Atlanta ... the Thrashers never played defense from 9/11/99 (their first preseason game in Columbus, Ga) through 4/10/2011.


No I'm not saying Mason is a better goaltender ... but the fact is that Mason has two good games this season. His stats were respectable before today's performance. Yet, when Mason lets in a nearly identical goal to what Rinne allowed less than 48 hours ago, the collective memory overlooks what Pekka did and the venom floods the thread. As others have noted, our team defense hung Mason out to dry on several of the goals allowed. McGinn and Kobasew were alone in the low slot and put perfectly placed shots on net. Blum saved Rinne from a similar puck left laying in the crease a game or two ago ... Mason didn't have the same help and lost track of the puck. Sucks, but it happens. Sometimes the goalie gets bailed out, sometimes he doesn't and the puck ends up in the net.

Rinne has a few games where he allowed far too many goals this season. Where he's allowed softies (the last Hawks goal for example). We wont' even get into his shootout performances this year that are a full 11 sv% below last year ... 20 sv% below two seasons ago.

Preds should get a free offsides. Now the linesmen are calling it close...lol.

Watch this be a scoreless period.

Hornqvist has had two great chances where he hasn't been able to lift the puck.

Will you people shut up about Mason, btw? He had an awful game. It happens. He's a good backup. He's not Rinne.
