Henrik might not have been great but giving New Jersey all those pwp's let them set up for the kind of shots that they wanted. Between the circles, in the slot and high slot, with screens, stuff ins and shots off the pass. Henrik might not be 100 % but I don't know what more can be expected of any goalie if his players keep on taking penalties. That being said who knows the team might respond better to Weekes right now knowing they'd have to tighten up or be embarrassed even worse.
I think they just said on YES that Weekes is starting tonight.
Might not be a horrible decision, but if it's a close game, I will have wanted Henrik in hindsight. Also, I am glad JJ is out for this game...I'd rather have him take a game off and be healthy for game 3 then hurt and totally ineffective in game 2...same goes for Henke if he's less than 80%.
All Weekes has to do is have a stellar 1st period and decent 2nd and 3rds. If he can come out and spark the team they'll run with it. I feel like this team is just waiting for a moment to set the fire under their *****.
