Important that we bounce back after the performance against the Flyers.

Lehner doesnt think he'll start

Robin Lehner says he doesn't expect to play tomorrow. #Sens

PMac is desperately trying to avoid a goalie controversy.

PMac should concern himself with winning "the best players play". I love Anderson and he is and should be our number one, but we should be riding the hot hand. Strange decisions this year

Edit: Apparently we are at home. Can someone change the title?


I'm hoping otherwise.

Everyone feel free to panic and explain how your lineup decisions are better than the current Jack Adams winner.

So just because he is a jack adams winner means he is free from criticism? That is some ridiculous thinking right there.

I feel like he wants to end it by burying Andy vs Bruins and making Lehner #1.

He didn't deserve critisism last year. This year is a different story though. Some of his decisions this season has been baffling.

Only so much he can do, he can't go out there and grab the players legs and actually have them move their feet.

I like the Bruins decision to go younger and more mobile on their back end. The likes of Krug and Hamilton are making a difference there. Definitely the class off our division.

Don't play that dump and chase game we saw on Tuesday, it won't work on this team. Their D can handle it and they'll obstruct the pics out of your forecheckers.

The players deserve their share of critisism. But decisions like putting Phillips on the powerplay and benching Lehner who has a hot streak for 2 consecutive games doesn't really make sense.

Yeah, no Jack Adams winner has ever made a questionable decision.

PM was making questionable decisions last year as well. But they usually worked out. This year it's a different story.

Up against our buddies in the Atlantic.

Well, I hope we put up a good showing.

Surprised Lehner isn't starting.

Just a question. How many Jack Adams winning coaches have been fired ?

It definitely buys you some leeway. After all, what did the choice of Andy over Lehner mean in the last game? Would it have been 4-0 instead of 5-0? I think there's a lot more to be critical of for better reasons than the choice of goalie. We're getting world class keeping on any given night so it doesn't really much matter.

How about we work on getting 4 good lines instead?!!!

What ridiculous discussions today, but I guess losing 5-0 does that to a particularly panicky fan base.

Anderson is starting because he is our number one goalie. When Lehner is our number one goalie he will get most of the starts. Sane hockey coaches understand that hot streaks happen, but if your number one guy is not going the odds are pretty good that you will get nowhere fast.

Hockey fans who want to see the backup goalie are like football fans who want to see the backup QB, which is to say they become easily obsessed with potential. In hockey, like football, it takes time to develop a quality starter. The backups pay their dues, gets starts here and there, and when the organization feels like it is time for them to take over they grab the reins. Organizations love it when a backup forces their hand with outstanding play, and makes them make tough decisions. However, until Lehner has at least twice as many quality starts (he now has 33 reg season and 2 playoff games under his best) he is still a huge wildcard.

For now the first priority probably is, and should be, getting Andy and the team going again.

In a shutout loss you have to start by blaming the goaltender, its just common sense. Anderson is the only reason it wasn't a 0-0 tie.

Andy should bounce back soon though. He was seen reading "Wraparounds for Dummies" on the team bus - that should help.

MacLean will wait until tomorrow morning to announce starter vs BOS. He will take Lehner's strong numbers against Bruins into consideration.
Anderson has not been confirmed.

Here's an interesting point a friend of mine pointed out to me the other day:

The success of the Turris line has hurt the other 3 lines. MacLean has traditionally liked to role 4 lines and that hasn't really been the case so for in 2013. By mid second period, the Turris line is basically out there every other shift and it upsets the flow of the lines, no one else really gets into a rhythm.

I don't know if I totally agree with the idea but I think it carries some merit. No other line is really getting a chance to consistently play together now besides the Greening - Smith - Neil unit. Mac's gotta manage that a bit better methinks.

The problem is that we have 3 lines when Kassian is in the line-up.

Nothing to do with panicing, simply a difference of opinion. Andy is and will remain the number one goalie, but in my world you ride the hot goaltender it is about wins we will be in a fight to make the playoffs. Yes I do understand you logic and I see the merit in it, I just would go the other way
