Fighting? FIGHTING THE PUCK?

Sweet Jesus...it wasn't just a fight...he was having World War 3 with full tactical nuclear strikes and Bio-Chemical weapons out there last night!

Seriously though, that goal was one heck of a stinker. What is wrong with that guy this year?
Yeah...it stinks like Poutine...

Cloutier's was MUCH worse. First off, Lalime got enough of it so it didn't blow right by him, while Lidstrom's shot saw nothing but air (and the back of the net). This wasn't all that meaningful too since Ottawa will end up 1st in the east anyway.

If it were not for the :mad: HORRIBLE :mad: 5 min call, the Sens may have never been in the game at all.. Ott's hit was not from behind and he never left his feet to make the hit.. Hard but clean.. 5 minutes and a game mis..Insane

Otts hit was both boarding or charging, and it made a "visible" injury, which means 5 and a game EVERY time, and that hit is going to get called EVERY time. Whine all you want, but that was the correct call.

My one defense of Lalime.

At least it wasn't the playoffs when it really counts.

Did Ottawa dominate? No, but neither did Dallas. Lalime's far too often tendancy to allow soft goals is increasingly alarming. Although Modano's goal was a hard shot, it was from an angle where Lalime should not have been on his knees, back in his net. There is no excuse for the 4th goal. What was he doing on his knees for a routine shot well outside the blue line? Ottawa, now down by a weak, weak goal, is forced to gamble. They get caught up and Lalime is caught cheating towards the open man on the 2 on 1. The D takes the pass away and the goalie takes the shooter, he should not cheat over. Sorry Egil, but Lalime, has not played well this year.

You can talk butterfly all you want. Lalime is not a true butterfly goalie. When he drops (which is all too often too soon) he does not cover much net for a bigger goalie. His mobility, once down, is very poor. This was never more evident than Pittsburgh's set play in the last 10 seconds. The puck goes back to the point, the point winds up, down goes Lalime, the shot is faked and passed across to a fwd who now has an open net to shoot at because like a fish out of water, Lalime is stuck over in the middle of the net on his knees. Fortunately, Pittsburgh missed the open net and hit the post.

Lalime benefits from having a sound defensive team like Ottawa in front of him. Look at how well both Rhodes and Tugnutt looked with Ottawa. He played better than I thought he was capable of last year but as someone mentioned, he was mediocre against NJ in games 2,3 and 4. A team will not win a cup with such substandard goaltending.
