Wards gonna take a lot if crap for that, but it was as perfect a shot as I've seen in a long time. He only had an inch there, and he dead eyed it. Ward assumed he had to pass it, and didnt hug every inch of te post. Got burned by perfection.
Ps. Cam had always been susceptable to the perfect shot. Semin, ovy, kovi, malkin, he's a positional goalie who gives up the perfect shots historically. Good with the bad.
Give Alfie that shot 100 times, how many times does he make it? A dozen?
i just cant believe there is still a chance in this game. we have gotten ridiculously lucky, so thats about the only reason, because we have been playing like absolute butt. gotta come out like we did 2nd period in toronto and just take over the 3rd. we do that, we win. or at least get it to OT.
Ward got railed by kypreos in between periods. The other two defended him, but nick blasted him basically saying ward isnt mentally strong. All the talent but can't stay at the high level he needs to. All the brilliant work all period gone to waste on one play. I don't know. He was overboard. Cam hasn't been himself, but overall how could you replace him with better? He has his flaws, but he's a legit number one goalie and we have no access to another who is better.
