Release the Lehner

Please for the love of god play Lehner in game 5. It doesn't matter how good or bad the goals were, or how much your team helped you, as a goalie it sucks to let in 6 goals. Look what happened to Luongo after game 3 of the SCF. If Lehner plays, at worst case scenario he gets elimination game experience, at best case scenario the change gets us on a roll. I don't care who got us here, after a lot of goals gets by a goalie he should always have a game off.

No thanks. If you start Lehner, might as well trade Anderson in the offseason.

You should make a poll. I vote Andy.

Edit: Wait did you make a poll before I said this? I must be blind.

Start Andy. If things go really south, put in Lehner for the start of the third period.

I think calling for Lehner in game 5 is ridiculous.. Andy stole game 3 for us and got us to this point. He may have had a rough 2nd and 3rd tonight, but the blame can't solely be placed on him. The entire team came out for the second completely flat. The jump they had in the first was non-existent and we paid for it right off the bat with two quick goals. We looked lost from the start of the second on, I say keep Andy in net and the players need to refocus for game 5.

I went with Lehner for game three, Anderson put it in my face. I'll go with Anderson for game five. *fingers crossed*

Not a chance will Lehner start game 5. Yeah I know that Clouston played Leclaire when we went down 3-1 after Elliott had a couple rough games vs the pens 3 years ago but Mac won't do that. Anderson got us to this point and he deserves a chance at trying to send this back to Ottawa. He was hung out to dry this game and the whole team owe him an apology for wasting away a good early performance. He gave the team a wake up call that they needed to play better in the 1st and they didn't respond at all.

This loss is on the team. It could/should have been 7-2 after the first. Anderson is a core vet on this and you don't insult him by playing Lehner in an elimination game unless he played really poorly.

He didn't and deserves to go back in.

If we go out, we go out with our best guys. Our best team doing the3 best it can. Win or lose. Not on some gimmick-y way to change things.

Anderson. Had a great first period, just completely collapsed in the 2nd and 3rd. Look what happened last game, he stood on his head. When a series is on the line you have to go with your #1. Always.

This can't be serious. The only reason it wasn't 10-2 after the first period alone was because of the play of Anderson. The team totally wasted what was an excellent performance by Andy - he more than gave them a chance to win and ample time to find their legs when they were getting walked on but they couldn't get their collective heads out of their behinds. Andy should be both furious and embarrassed at the play of the team in front of him tonight. Yes, he (unsurprisingly) eventually yielded a handful of goals. That generally happens when facing quality scoring chance after quality scoring chance from what is essentially a top-six full of all-stars. It is outstanding he even held the fort as long as he did.

He has been money all season. To go with Lehner now would not only be the wrong move but also a total slap in the face.

This has to be the dumbest reaction post of all time.

THIS IS NOT LEHNER'S TEAM. Some of you Lehner fans are actually making me start to hate the guy with your unbridled love for him. Fact: Anderson is better than Lehner. There is no debating that. At all. Spare me your "I just feel better when Lehner is in" and your "I think the team plays better and calmer behind Lehner".

Good lord, it's ONE freaking game removed from him stealing Game 3. ONE.

Christ almighty. Most of this fanbase is great, but the "what have you done for me lately" crowd drives me up a ****ing wall.
