Preds vs Coyotes (Oct 31) Hutton or Hellberg?

Hi there,

Anyone have any indications as to who will start in net for the Preds tomorrow night against Mike Smith and the Coyotes?

Thanks and much appreciated.

Since he's first on the depth chart, you're probably right. Hellberg would be the backup and if we get another poor performance out of Hutton, then at that point I'd venture to say all bets are off... thanks!

most folks who were at the game saturday didnt criticize huttons performance all that much... apparently he was stopping shots but the team wasnt clearing rebounds

easy now, not all rebounds can be cleared, it's up to the goalie to control the rebounds

It will be Hutton. Unless it isn't - then it will be Hellberg.

Im just going by what others have said... I was surprised that more people didnt talk about Hutton being crappy and hit the "we need Bryz" panic button... but most people have said he played well enough but didnt get any help.

No need to hit the panic button yet... give it at least 2 more 4+ gaa games and then lets talk

Believe me, in that game vs. the Blues., there were a dozen guys sleepwalking through the entire contest. Hutton was hardly the worst offender, but he does have to be accountable for some of the damage. Hellberg was left completely defenseless on his first NHL shot, and didn't inspire much more confidence at that point.

it has been a week or so, but I remember him fighting the puck a bit. Shwartz's goal was a beauty and beat hutton clean, and I remember him crapping a puck mason style. coaches and teammates are doing the right thing by deflecting a piss poor game off the goaltender and onto themselves. He made saves, his rebound control was awful, which I think has to do more with NHL experience and the speed of the game. I think that will come. But to say a goalie giving up 5 goals and didn't play too bad is inaccurate.

He didn't but he gave up 2 goals on 4 shots in the 2nd period and 3 goals on 9 shots in the 3rd. If those were all on rebounds I'd be shocked.

Should we just turn this into the official goaltending thread?

Anyways, Hutton was hardly lights out Saturday, but he was the least of our problems. We wouldn't have own that game with prime Hasek and prime Roy both playing goalie at once.
