he's still young, has a good goalie coach and for some reason the Blues just don't play very good in front of him.......and he very well could have been tired out after making 5 tough save after tough save
Hannu - can you say headcase! Saves the hard ones and misses the easy ones. Fell apart after the 4th goal. Granted this loss was collaborative effort. We came out flat. We didn't hit for the first half. Missed opportunities on the 5-on-3's.
Disappointing loss, but I don't think it should be entirely blamed on Toivonen. The 5 on 3 near the end should've been capitalized on. It should've been 4-3, or 5-3 in the Blues' favor. But alas, no shots at all on that powerplay, and the Jackets scored 3 more goals.
I'll agree that the PP was lackluster(what else is new), but when your goalie gives up six you're not gonna win.
Let's say that we scored on both 5-on-3s....its still only a tie game. And, really, you shouldn't need 3 PPG to tie.
There's a bunch of what if's, but if we had scored on the first and second 5 on 3s, the momentum could've gone in a whole different direction, and the end result could've been different. Agreed on the sentiment that the goaltending was very shaky tonight, though.
