Chris Mason - 22 saves, shutout.... 1st star
Martin Gerber - 19 saves, shutout (sortof)... no star. That's an outrage!

Well, if there's one positive to come out of this game, hopefully it's that Gerber got to see some rubber against a pretty good team and he held his own. I gather it's going to be a while yet before his notoriously fragile confidence gets back to the level it was at in the first half of last year, but at least it's something for him to build upon.

Good job Gerber! And despite allowing all 6 goals, I hope Emery doesn't get all the blame for this one either.

I thought it was hilarious (my buddy mentioned to me) how relaxed Gerber looked when he skated in, then he went to make a ton of solid saves. That's what we need to do from now on, just sneak him some brandy before the game, or some other delicious Swiss beverage, get him relaxed and we have our #1 elite goaltender.

Well, not to burst the bubble, but...he did allow a goal in the third period, it just didn't count because Arnott used his backside to dislodge the goal before he put the puck into the open net. It was the right call though.

Gerber looked good in the third period tonight. Emery definitely did not deserve to allow six goals, but sometimes the puck just doesn't bounce your way.

I like Gerber, really hope that he can find his confidence and regain his form for the Senators. Good luck the rest of the season!

Emery is number 1 without a shadow of a doubt in my mind.

But Gerber needs playing time too, as he is much more capable than what he has shown in Sens uniform.

Ottawa needs both of them healthy and in top form to make any noise in the post season.

Even if we have two capable goalies entering the post-season, am I the only one who gets upset that Murray never makes a goaltending change, except when it's already way too late?

Washington pulled Kolzig in that one game against us when they were only down by 3 goals, and then they won in overtime with a solid performance by Johnson... If the roles had been reversed, Murray would have waited too long and a comeback would have been impossible.

Bang on !!

Not only the washington game, the but Atlanta game, and the Carolina game, which were both comeback wins, thier respective coaches pulled thier goalie after 3-4 goals, and it sparked thier team to comeback wins.

Emery should have been pulled after the 4th goal.

Murray is a lousy coach.

Only a few days ago you were saying to have patience with Gerber? What has changed since then Rico?

I don't blame either of the goalies for the team's lack of offence during the last 5 games. It's all about offensive depth and we have NONE whatsoever, thanks to Muckler depleting the entire farm team.

This team requires two more forwards. Affordable and realistic are Roberts and Gelinas as top-6 and 4th line options, respectively.

Emery is the team's number one goaltender, and goaltending is actually much better this year compared to last year when Emery and Morrisson were the playoff tenders. Gerber hasn't played up to his ability in his new team, but I think it's importatnt that he gets more games under him to get in form.

Offence is the issue with this team right now. Once Redden comes back, Corvo should play less defensive minutes and have more of a PP specialist role. Atleast the team held fort when Redden has been missing most of the season. But when one of Alfie, Spezza, and Heatley goes down, the team can't score.

A non bashing Gerber thread. I like it.

Emery: Too many flaws in his game. It doesn't show up in day to day games as much, but when the post season rolls around. Teams will have video conferences on him alone. Studying the flaws and exposing them. He isn't good enough, especially with a Chara-less team in front of him this year.

Glove hand, between the blocker and body, and when in doubt shoot low on the pads, and have a winger going to the net to tap in the rebound that will spill into the slot.

Fine.

Who exactly is available now to make the goaltending better?

I was drawn into the pre-April numbers (.910 SV% or so) and felt he wore down and season went on. I figured he'd post closer to the .910 this year.
I also expected Emery to be a little better and he has been.

I though we'd have average to slightly above this year... and that's what we've gotten. Gerber's stretch of game blew, but I can accept the odd (very odd) shelling as part of his game. Other than those 4 games in a row... I have no qualms about what's gone on with the goaltending. Most games will be fine, as long as we have a capable backup to throw in.

Where we've been below average is the skaters. Our team is basically as good as the one we had last season. I still maintain that Chara's ES defensive play is the only perceptible loss. Yet, we've allowed more goals and scored less... not surprisingly, these numbers also correspond to more given up and less shots taken by a skating core that hasn't looked anything like the one we had last season (despite the similarities in the names on the back of jerseys).
